Keynote Presentation: Considering Cannabis as a Traditional Crop

Speaker

Abstract

Cannabis sativa is an herbaceous plant of high interest, with applications of the plant and its products varied and ripe with investment. The Cannabis industry experienced a new surge of business as each state within the US moves toward more relaxed regulations for medicinal and recreational use. While the economic impacts are worthy of study, the fundamental fact doesn’t change: Cannabis sativa is a plant to be maximized for yield with improved desired agronomic and compositional characteristics. Therefore, it is appropriate to consider Cannabis sativa as a crop plant worthy of research not only for direct improvements, but also for the crop industry worldwide. As more places in the US are permitted to grow and cultivate Cannabis and the investor pool expands, the crop industry can expect to see multiple benefits of accelerating knowledge in farming practices, genetics, physiology, harvesting, processing and labor. 

Learning Objectives: 

1. Agricultural management of Cannabis today
2. New avenues of research that will advance crop research
