Growing Cannabis in Wine Country: The Shone Farm Project
June 24, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT
In 2019, the Santa Rosa Junior College initiated a hemp cultivation project at Shone Farm to specifically identify the best agronomic practices for cultivating hemp and understand the potential terpene drift between hemp and wine grape vines.
This session, led by Dr. George Sellu, Ph.D., will address these questions, provide an overview of the Shone Farm project and share his observations and insights on the agricultural impact of hemp farming in wine country.
- Was there a notable impact on the grapes?
- Can these two crops co-exist?
- What does the future look like with regard to cannabis and vineyards in close proximity and what type of regulations can we expect?
