Industrial Hemp is the latest crop to gain the attention of Montana producers and consumers thanks to a pilot program by the state of Montana. Farmers are adding this emerging crop to their operation, however there is much to know about its growth, uses and regulations. Montana Farmers Union is holding a workshop on Industrial Hemp in Glendive, June 13 at the Dawson Community College Auditorium.
“Industrial Hemp is shaping up to have a lot of potential for Montana producers,” said Alan Merrill, President. “For this event we have brought together a knowledgeable lineup of presenters to help producers make informed decisions regarding their operation.”
June’s event will provide the opportunity for the public to learn about this new crop with first-hand knowledge from presenters well-versed on the subject. The presenters will include Ian Foley with the Montana Department of Agriculture, Jeff Kostuik of Hemp Production Services of Canada and producer Colby Johnson of Conrad.
