Hemp Variety Selection & Regulations Webinar

April 29th, 2021 / 3pm PT 

Hemp and especially cannabinoid based production has been somewhat of a moving target for operators these past few years. The reality is, the hemp industry is still in its infancy. A lack of stable genetics, along with shifting regulations, remain barriers for cultivators across the supply chain.

In an effort to provide transparent and honest information, Kola Seed is teaming up with experts in breeding, research, and distribution to discuss end consumer needs, hemp genetics, trial data and regulatory realities.

In this webinar, you'll hear more about:

  • What distributors are looking for and what is needed to meet the needs of regulatory bodies and end-consumers

  • Genetic trial data based on various hemp varieties & attributes

  • Importance of variety selection and how breeding practices are evolving to meet the needs of the supply chain

We hope you’ll join us for this special livestream event on April 29th at 3pm PT.
