AmericanHort to Debut Hemp Conference Prior to Cultivate ’21
AmericanHort has announced plans for a new Hemp event to take place July 9-10, prior to Cultivate’21, in Columbus, Ohio.
The two-day event will include a trade show and education programming featuring leading perspectives on hemp production. The Hemp Conference at Cultivate will take place in Battelle Hall at the Greater Columbus Convention Center and a separate registration will be required. Discounts will be offered if attending both events.
“This event brings together hemp growers, industry vendors, educators and researchers to discuss best practices for successful hemp production,” said Ken Fisher, president and CEO of AmericanHort. “As more ornamental plant growers look to diversify their business with hemp production, it is important that AmericanHort provide quality grower programming for this crop.”
The event is designed for greenhouse and field growers, both novice and expert alike, who are currently growing hemp or contemplating entering this market. Anyone wanting to learn more about the technical aspect of being a successful grower will benefit from participation.
The hemp education programming will be production focused covering topics like the constantly evolving landscape of state and federal laws and regulations, the impact of genetics and environment on yield and quality, production inputs, identification and management of hemp pest and diseases, harvesting and processing practices, and more.
Exhibit sales for the trade show is now open and sponsorship opportunities are available.
Registration for The Hemp Conference includes a complimentary Expo Plus for Cultivate’21, providing access to the Cultivate’21 trade show. Discounted event registration is offered to AmericanHort members registering for this conference and the Cultivate’21 All-Access education pass.
Pre-registration for The Hemp Conference at Cultivate and Cultivate’21 opens Feb. 8.
