Those working with industrial hemp have an opportunity to make their voices heard. The Environmental Protection Agency has received applications to add hemp to the labeling of ten currently registered pesticide products that contain active ingredients with established tolerance exemptions. Due to the EPA’s expectation that these initial applications involving hemp may be of significant interest to the public, and to enhance transparency, EPA is offering the opportunity to comment.

CTAHR was well represented at the American Society of Horticultural Science (ASHS) meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada. Despite late-July temperatures that exceeded 100 degrees on four of the five days they were at the conference, an impressive array of students, faculty, and Extension agents shared and increased their knowledge with like-minded scholars and professionals from all over the country.
When grad student Michael Wong (PhD, Nutrition Science) submitted his first paper—ever!—to the Journal of Obesity, he didn’t know what he was setting in motion. Not only was it accepted for publication; it was selected as one of the top five submissions of the year, praised as a study that “significantly furthers our scientific understanding of obesity.”
Now his paper, titled “Children and Adolescent’s Anthropometrics Body Composition from 3D Optical Surface Scans,” is going to be published and featured in the November issue of Obesity and will appear prominently in a press release that the Obesity Society will issue then. In addition, he has been asked to attend the society’s ObesityWeek event in Las Vegas in November to present the paper in person in a special session.
