UF Industrial Hemp Pilot Project Workshop – August 10th

The UF Industrial Hemp Pilot Project is holding a Central Florida Partners Workshop on Friday, August 10th from 8 AM to 5 PM at the UF Plant Science REU in Citra, FL.

The UF Industrial Hemp Pilot Project Partners Workshop series will be offered across the state for prospective grower and industry partners to get an update about the industrial hemp program at UF, facilitate a discussion about the direction of the new industry, and identify how folks can get involved in the UF program. Their goals are to establish a process to expand the scope of our program through Project Sponsors and to directly engage growers and industry groups as ‘Qualified Project Partners’.

This is one of three workshops being offered at various areas around the state, and is open to both growers and industry partners.The morning session, from 8 a.m. to noon, will focus on grower interests and partnership opportunities. The afternoon session, from 1 to 5 p.m., will focus on industry interests and partnerships.
