Session Title:   Greenhouse Needs for Hemp Production 

Friday, July 9  1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

Description: CBD hemp production can occur in the field or greenhouse. However, greenhouse cultivation enables production of the highest quality flower, creating a unique market advantage for greenhouse operators. While hemp crop needs are similar to other horticultural crops (e.g. poinsettias and mums), there are enough differences that existing infrastructure may require some modifications to support efficient, profitable, high-quality hemp production. Learn about the structure and equipment requirements for the various types of hemp crops, ranging from liners to flower and seed. Understand how crop form, seasonality, and crop protection needs will influence your infrastructure strategy.
