Cornell University will host the state’s first Industrial Hemp Research Forum today.
The forum will bring together researchers, academic leaders, businesses, and processors to discuss strategies aimed at advancing industrial hemp research in the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes regions, and statewide. Cornell University has identified industrial hemp as a valuable commodity crop. Clothing, consumer products like soap, insulation, and more can be made from the plant’s stalks and seeds.
The forum will take place at 1 o’clock at Stocking Hall, Room 148.
