Tradition Meets Innovation in Lancaster County

Episode 50: On this week’s show we discuss how this ancient crop, often harvested by hand, is a bright spot of ag innovation, and how some Lancaster County farmers already have the systems in place for a smooth transition to growing hemp.

Then we hear from deputy ag secretary Fred Strathmeyer about how the anticipated USDA guidelines for industrial hemp in 2020 may or may not change things here in the Commonwealth for next year, plus what he’s looking forward to most at the 2019 Pennsylvania Hemp Summit at the Lancaster Convention Center on October 7 & 8.
