The UF/IFAS Industrial Hemp Pilot Project has established a hemp research program through state and federal authorization. Cultivation and variety trials of industrial hemp began spring 2019 at UF/IFAS research facilities. The UF/IFAS Hemp Workshop and Field Day series will summarize the early research efforts and results regarding hemp cultivation, variety trials, and invasion risk assessment at UF. Registration will be open until space is filled.
The morning session includes lunch and is ticketed separately from the afternoon session. If you wish to attend all day, please make sure you register for both the morning and afternoon, which is $40 total. You will need to provide your own transportation to the second location.
This event is located in Homestead, FL, and it is one of three workshop and field day sessions scheduled in various locations around the state.
