"Growing Hemp in Indiana" Informational Session
The Purdue Extension Service will be hosting an informational session titled "Growing Hemp in Indiana" on Wednesday, March 20 at 6:30 p.m. at the Banquet Hall at Vanderburgh County 4-H Center located at 201 E. Boonville-New Harmony Road. The United States passed the 2018 Farm Bill on Dec. 21, 2018. This new legislation changed long-standing laws regarding hemp, which is no longer considered a Schedule 1 drug. Hemp no longer requires a federal DEA permit to handle, is recognized as an agricultural crop, and is regulated by the USDA. For the 2019 growing season, there is an opportunity and a need to accommodate research that will contribute to Indiana's hemp infrastructure. At this workshop, Extension educators will present the current status of hemp production in Indiana and provide information for interested growers. A question and answer session will take place following the presentation. This event is open to the public and no RSVP is necessary. For more information, please call the Extension Office at 812-867-4935. Purdue University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity institution.
