OREGON — A Hemp Grower Spotlight webinar focusing on Sulcanna Co. will be held from 9 to 10:30 a.m. April 17.
Sulcanna Co. occupies an historic manufacturing facility in Jo Daviess County. Its focus is on hemp horticulture, genetics development, extraction and product formulation. It also offers marketing, branding and distribution infrastructure to support farm-branded product sales.
Sulcanna has formed Illinois’ only agricultural hemp cooperative, which consists of small scale hemp farmers looking to capitalize on their collective knowledge and tap into CBD and CBG retail price points.
The goal of this webinar will be to provide attendees with an overview of the current market structure, economics of hemp production, and what it takes to be profitable in this new industry. Topics will also include genetics, cultivation practices, compliance testing, harvest, drying and marketing.
