On April 18, 2017, at New York’s first ever Hemp Summit, Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul said that years from now we would look back on the date as the beginning of something big. While we all know that this blog is not what she was referring to, we hope it will become a resource for producers and others interested in hemp to stay up-to-date on the research going on here at Cornell.
