On April 17, the Western Growers Center for Innovation & Technology will be hosting a Hemp Information and Overview Meetup to discuss the latest trends in industrial hemp and opportunities for specialty crop growers and agtech companies.

Industrial hemp, not to be confused with marijuana, is a naturally-occurring and increasingly-popular product that is now being used to manufacture everything from biodegradable plastic to construction materials. During the Meetup, Gabe Youtsey will speak about the hemp program at University of California, Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources and research surrounding the uses of hemp. Richard De Andrade of Solare Trace Inc., a traceability software company, will share the newest cutting-edge platforms and structured supply chain services for hemp production and distribution.

Join us as we delve into the discussion! This meetup is offered at no cost, and a light lunch will be available during the program.
