Growers, processors, product developers and others interested in hemp grain and fiber are invited to see trials of new hemp cultivars, learn the latest in weed and disease management watch live demos of cutting-edge hemp processing technologies.

Two new hemp varieties, bred to help New York producers meet regulatory limits for THC, will be showcased at the event. Unlike other cultivars from China, which are late flowering and consistently test higher for THC, Cornell’s new varieties are reliably compliant for low or undetectable THC. Experts at Cornell AgriTech will also show several other hemp cultivars from France, Italy, Canada and U.S. breeding programs.

Experts will also demonstrate trials of herbicides, autonomous robots, seed treatments other techniques that can help successfully manage weeds and diseases in New York state.

One of the highlights of the event will be the exhibition of new equipment including a HempFlax Double-Cut Dual Purpose Combine, FiberCut Sickle Bar Harvester and FiberTrack 660 Mobile Decorticator systems, which is the only one of its kind in the Northeast.

The quality and quantity of educational resources and showcase of new varieties, techniques and technologies all in one location make the event an outstanding opportunity for hemp growers to strategically learn from Cornell experts.
