Murray State University hosted its Agricultural Hemp Field Day on September 19, 2019. The event included field tours, updates and panel discussions on the crop and Murray State’s lead in hemp education. 

The University’s leadership within the area of hemp exploration is historic and diverse within higher education. Murray State planted the first legal agricultural hemp research plot on May 12, 2014. 

Since that time, the University has been on the front line of exploration of the crop, hosting field days while continually working with the Kentucky Department of Agriculture, local farmers, researchers, legislators, companies and partners to assist in the development of the industry within the region and commonwealth.

Earlier this year, Murray State announced a new Center for Agricultural Hemp, cementing its position in the forefront as a leader in research, education, policy and innovation within the hemp industry.
