WILSON, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Criticality, LLC is pleased to announce its participation in the upcoming North Carolina Chamber’s annual Agribusiness Conference on Oct. 4 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Scott Propheter, the company’s vice president of agronomy and outreach, is one of three industry representatives selected by the Chamber to discuss the state’s newest agricultural commodity: industrial hemp.
Propheter will be joined on the “Hemp in NC: What you Need to Know” panel by North Carolina Assistant Commissioner for Agriculture, Sandy Stewart, Ph.D., and U.S. Department of Agriculture Chief of Staff for Marketing and Regulatory Programs, Lorren Walker. Tyler Russell, a hemp law attorney with Ward and Smith, P.A., will moderate the panel.
The panel, scheduled for 11 a.m. Eastern, will provide conference attendees with the latest updates to permanently legalize industrial hemp cultivation within the state of North Carolina. The panel will also examine the impact that legalization of industrial hemp production could have on agribusiness in the state.
“The hemp industry is off to a running start in North Carolina, but with any new industry, the laws and regulations are not yet updated to accommodate the fast pace – both on a state and federal level,” said Propheter. “Criticality looks forward to discussing the state of the industry with Agribusiness Conference attendees, as well as what the future could hold if the proper framework is set in place.”
