Hemp ready for harvest


Grown over the course of three months in an approximately 1.5 acre plot at the Hutson School of Agriculture's farm laboratory, student workers, under the leadership of Farm Operating Manager Jason Robertson, began to harvest their crop this week.

Robertson said students will cut and weigh hemp plants to determine, among other things, their biomass.

He said the University is primarily concerned with researching the effect of different planting conditions.

Such conditions include row widths and the size of planting populations on the yield, maturity and quality of the hemp.
