Industrial Hemp Fiber Processing in Southern Illinois
You’re invited to an event March 6 from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Southern Illinois Research Park Atrium. We will be introducing a survey that is underway to determine if southern Illinois farming is ready for an industrial hemp fiber processing plant. We’re trying to learn from farmers what they might be able to do and what they need to do it. If southern Illinois farmers are ready, we’ll try to get additional funding to create the plan for the processing plant.
If you are interested in learning about this project and/or completing the survey in-person, please join us. We will be available for Q/A from 11-12, then project presentations and lunch 12-1 (first come first serve), then discussions and more Q/A from 1-2. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is appreciated.
