CBD and industrial hemp are hot topics at this Maine farming conference


With last fall’s passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, the federal government decriminalized growing industrial hemp in this country. Next month state and university officials will discuss this emerging crop and what it could mean for Maine growers as part of the annual Maine Grain Conference in Presque Isle.

A presentation on industrial hemp by officials with the Cooperative Extension, the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry and the University of Vermont may be of particular interest to growers looking to diversify into the crop, according to Dr. Ellen Mallory, sustainable agriculture specialist with University of Maine Cooperative Extension.
