The University of Nevada, Reno Extension service is offering a workshop March 12 to train people throughout the state how to properly use pesticides when growing hemp.
The workshop is for individuals who plan to grow hemp commercially.
“Hemp has many different uses and different plant management requirements, depending on how the growers plan for it to be used,” said Extension Urban Integrated Pest Management and Pesticide Safety Program Coordinator Melody Hefner. “This class will cover laws and regulations surrounding the hemp industry, best management practices for growing outdoors, updates to the permit process, the biology of hemp, and what insect pests to watch out for.”
The cost is $30.
