and horticultural crop. Agronomic principles pertaining to industrial
hemp as a field crop are explored, including the cultivation,
management, and harvesting of hemp for fiber and seed production.
Growing hemp under controlled environments for flower production will
also be discussed. Cultivation practices including irrigation,
fertilization, integrated pest management (IPM), air circulation, and
light control are examined for optimal crop quality and yield.
