Inaugural Heart of America Agricultural Hemp Classic

Heart of America Agricultural Hemp Classic

Building on the success of their sold-out 2019 Missouri Hemp Conference, the Missouri Hemp Association (MHA) has organized another grower conference. The “Heart of America – Agricultural Hemp Classic” was held at Stoney Creek Hotel & Conference Center in Independence, Missouri.

The event, open to growers throughout the Midwest, included speakers on growing hemp indoors and outdoors, as well as processors, end-users, and more.

This virtual ag newsroom includes links to photos and audio content available free of charge for digital or print publication or broadcast.
