Farmers who have considered growing hemp as a cash crop but are unaware of the best practices have an opportunity to learn from someone who's been at it for a few years now.
There will be a CBD Hemp Field Day at American Hemp Research in Roseville and CEO Andy Huston says that his company's objective is to assist farmers with getting started in hemp production.
He says that the hemp field day will help interested parties get a better understanding of how producers could benefit from a crop that he says could be "huge" for rural America.
The field day is a collaboration between the Illinois Extension and Huston's company.
Also speaking at the field day will be Extension Educator Phillip Alberti, who'll also talk about the potential new cash crop for producers in Illinois.
