Once again Star Expo’s are leading the field in technology as we are excited to be adding hemp components to our shows. Agriculture has been waiting a long time for this opportunity. Hemp production will allow producers to diversify their farming programs and create new markets. The benefits of hemp to the ag industry are massive for the future of agriculture. Commodity Exchanges are being created for both industrial and medical hemp products giving buyers, sellers and traders the place and tools to trade.c
