County of Applicant:
Guilford
Description:

This grant provides funding to support North Carolina A&T State University’s outreach and education regarding the risks and benefits of growing industrial hemp in North Carolina, including related marketing and regulatory issues. There is a great deal of interest in growing industrial hemp in North Carolina, but there are many uncertainties about the best production methods, potential markets, and the regulations that affect the crop. NCA&T will offer industrial hemp workshops across the state and sessions on industrial hemp at field days. The project will also train Cooperative Extension agents so they will be able to respond to questions in their counties.
