Atrazine and growing CBD Hemp

Asked April 30, 2019, 8:20 AM EDT

I have a license to grow Hemp this year. I will be growing Hemp for CBD production. The field that I am considering growing in has had .8 pounds of atrazine per acre put on it with the previous years corn crop. My question is - Can i grow my CBD Hemp in this field and not get any residual herbicide showing up in the plant?

Apologies,

I'm not familiar enough with hemp or atrazine to provide you with a concrete answer.

I suggest contact Dr. Bernie Zandstra, who is a weed scientist at MSU an familiar with different herbicides. His contact information is: zandstra@msu.edu or 517-353-6637

thanks!
