Brookside Laboratories, Inc. hosted Dr. George Place of North Carolina State University to discuss emerging interest in industrial hemp. Dr. Place did a fantastic job presenting a primer on industrial hemp. Topics included uses (fiber, seed, or oils), regulations, processing, biology, lab testing needs, food safety hazard concerns, pests, diseases, and others. This presentation was a great session and an excellent starting point for gathering information on this exciting new cropping opportunity.
