Alabama hemp producers looking ahead to the 2021 season are invited to participate in roundtable discussions with Alabama Cooperative Extension agents and specialists.

Alabama Extension is hosting three discussion events with producers over the next three weeks, beginning this Thursday at Camp Meadowbrook in Cullman, Ala. One will be held on Nov. 13 at the Richard Beard Building in Montgomery, Ala. The other will be held at the Wiregrass Research Center in East Headland, Ala.

They will be held from 9 a.m. through 11 a.m.

The sessions are designed for hemp farmers to discuss the challenges and potential opportunities in the industry. Anyone with an interest in hemp is welcome to come and share their experiences from this year’s growing season and ask questions.

A representative from the Department of Agriculture and Industries will also be available to answer any specific questions regarding Alabama rules and regulations.

A maximum of 30 people will be allowed at each event, though everyone else is welcome to attend via zoom.
