*Hemp & Enterprise CBD Budget Model*

Dr. Tyler Mark, UK Ag. Economist, and Jonathan Shepherd, Ag. Economics Farm Management Specialist, have released new, interactive enterprise budget models for industrial hemp producers. This is an EXTREMELY useful tool for those newly considering or perhaps working to optimize hemp production efforts. The tabs at the bottom of the sheet denote different production models, and the data can be manipulated to evaluate different scenarios. The file can be found at this link and is freely available to the public.

A Grower’s Guide to Kentucky Hemp Production Videos - May 2020

The videos in this series were generated for the webinar “A Grower’s Guide to Kentucky Hemp Production,” which was held on May 5, 2020.  Specialists from the University of Kentucky and the Kentucky Department of Agriculture have provided this production and pest management information for hemp producers in Kentucky and surrounding area.  Information in this series was accurate at the time of recording, however, information may have changed.  Growers should work with their county agents for the most up-to-date and the most accurate information.
