2022 is the inaugural year of hemp production in Idaho! NCAP is excited to announce our series of hemp industry stakeholder meetings made possible by funding from the Western Center. We are inviting everyone with a stake in the growth of Idaho's hemp industry together to build connections, problem solve and innovate. This will be useful for anyone interested in biomass production for fiber, seed, isolates, etc.
Our first industry stakeholder meeting will be held virtually on May 12 at 5pm MT. We will hold three more in this series, dates/locations TBD. We will also publish a report of industry needs at the conclusion of the series.
This first meeting will help highlight pre-planting considerations for this new crop. We are still shaping the agenda based on stakeholder input, so please reach out to Christina, our Healthy Food and Farms Program Manager with your thoughts: 208-888-5024, [email protected].
So far the topics that have come up have been: carbon sequestration potential of hemp; how to overcome rural grower isolation; mobile/sharing equipment. ISDA is also open to providing answers to questions as well as a process for gathering comments or concerns to ensure the program evolves with the needs of industry stakeholders like you. Please join us! You must register on Zoom to participate.
