University Of Maryland To Host Risk Management Workshop For Hemp Growers
University of Maryland Extension will host a “Risk Management Considerations for Hemp Producers” webinar on Monday, Jan. 11 at 2 p.m.
In the last three years, interest in industrial hemp production has exploded across the US. One of the consequences of the hype surrounding industrial hemp production is that people new to agriculture, representing diverse demographics, have been drawn to the industry. Misinformation surrounding this industry is rampant, especially economic potential. The objective of this session is to dispel the economic and legal mysteries of hemp production. Producers will take away a series of budgets and contract considerations.
