Hoosier Hemp News

Purdue Hemp Field Day

The Purdue Industrial Hemp Research Team invited the public to Lafayette, IN for a hemp field day on August 25th. Janna Beckerman (pictured above), Professor of Botany and Plant Pathology and Extension Plant Pathologist, welcomed the guests with an emphatic "happy hemp day!" as they made their way toward the field. The INHIA team was present to describe the many products that can be made from hemp along with explaining state and federal legislation and introducing local hemp companies. If you would like more information about Purdue's research on industrial hemp, visit their (new!) website
