Upper Cumberland Hemp Expo Announced

Jan 13, 2020

The inaugural Upper Cumberland Hemp Expo, hosted by the Upper Cumberland Extension Team, will be held Feb. 28 at the Hyder-Burks Agriculture Pavilion in Cookeville.

The Expo will feature educational breakout sessions covering production, budgeting, diseases, pests, marketing, policy, laws, crop insurance, and other pertinent topics related to the growing and processing of hemp. An extensive trade show with a multitude of vendors such as processors, equipment dealers, CBD retailers, and more will allow participants to learn more about the industry and find answers to questions.

Despite the production and marketing challenges of 2019, hemp still has the potential to be a viable agricultural option for producers. The Upper Cumberland Hemp Expo will be an excellent opportunity to network with other producers, meet with potential hemp buyers, and learn from some of the best and brightest in the industry.

The Expo is open to the public and currently available at an Early Bird Registration fee of $25 until Feb. 7. Regular admission after Feb. 7 or at the door will be $35.00.  For more information or to register, visit hemp.tennessee.edu.
