Interested in growing hemp? Mark your calendar to join the U.S. Hemp Growers Association (USHGA) for an informational meeting at the 2020 Commodity Classic in San Antonio, Texas.

“This is an exciting time for hemp growers,” says Caren Wilcox, executive director of the association. “USHGA knows this new crop will add to America’s agricultural strengths. We look forward to this event at Commodity Classic and the opportunity to present an overview of the important information we have been sharing at Hemp Colleges across the country.”

The meeting will be held Friday, Feb. 28, in room 006A at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

During the meeting, farmers will learn about the opportunities and challenges to grow hemp in the U.S. and hear an overview of the newly formed USHGA.

In addition, the association will provide a summary of the 2020 hemp planting intentions study, conducted along with Farm Journal.
