“We understand that a lot of our attendees, the row crop farmers, are indeed future hemp producers, so we see the correlation there. Our show has been about education, so we see this as a great opportunity to provide this for the future hemp producers,” said Ken Dean, manager of the Western Farm Show that takes place annually in Kansas City.
Dean said there are plans to offer educational opportunities for farmers who are growing industrial hemp at next year’s show, and there may also be space for exhibitors who are focused on the industrial hemp industry.
The 2020 Western Farm Show is coming up in Kansas City Feb. 21-23.
