InnoTech Alberta will share their 16 years of experience in working with hemp at two workshops focusing on the crop next week
Producers looking to expand into industrial hemp can check out one of two seminars taking place, that focus on the crop. The Growing Industrial Hemp seminars will take place in Vermilion on Tuesday and Vegreville on Thursday.
Senior Researcher at InnoTech Alberta in Vegreville, Jan Slaski, says there's a growing interest among farmers in growing industrial hemp, but the knowledge among farmers is limited.
Slaski adds they'll also have experienced growers from the Viking area on hand who will share knowledge, information and practical tips for growers.
The event is free, but those interested in attending are asked to R.S.V.P.
