The World Ag Expo in Tulare, one of the largest ag trade shows in the world, will be taking up the hemp conversation next year.

Plant Growth Group— a consultancy in the hemp marketplace — will be partnering with the expo on a 9,400-square-foot-tent that will house 30 10’x10’ exhibitor spaces and a seminar stage.

Used in more than 25,000 products globally, industrial hemp was reintroduced to U.S. agriculture with the 2018 Farm Bill and interest in hemp has grown nationwide.

“World Ag Expo kicks off the growing season for the world, so it’s the perfect time to get everyone focused on ag and finding the best options for their crops,” said Jerry Sinift, International Agri-Center CEO. “This year, that includes educational sessions and exhibitors focused on hemp, all in one tent.”

The 53rd Expo will run Tuesday Feb. 11-13, 2020, at the International Agri-Center in Tulare.
