Since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized hemp production, the demand for hemp supply has rapidly increased, opening the gates for seeds and cultivation. As with any nascent industry, there is an educational learning curve with best practices being established for genetics, cultivation, drying/curing, transportation sale of the biomass, and laboratory compliance and r+d testing. Ongoing workforce development and educational training opportunities such as this webinar series positively impact the entire hemp supply chain.

In a wide-ranging conversation with featured cannabis expert Roger Brown, the first digital event in the three-part series will cover steps to compliant hemp testing with a focus on how to mitigate risks when growing hemp. It will highlight the importance of strategic plot design so that one high-testing batch of hemp crops doesn’t force you to destroy the entire field and other key strategies for farmers to get the most out of their grow.

Roger Brown is a pioneer in the cannabis testing space and the co-founder of the first cannabis testing laboratory in Florida, ACS Laboratory. As the largest cannabis third-party testing and compliance laboratory in the eastern United States, ACS Laboratory is a well-known resource in helping others understand compliance.  Similarly, Green Point Research has a Farmers First approach with hemp services such as drying and farming consulting included with purchases of seeds as a value-add to its customers.

“Green Point Research is committed to providing high-quality products, processes and services, to effectively support farmers,” said David Hasenauer, CEO of Green Point Research. “The best practice recommendations for hemp cultivation we are sharing in this educational series are based on innovative scientific research, strategic partnerships, and our culture of continuous improvement. We look forward to continuing to serve as a valued partner to the industry.”
