Why Imperial Valley
The inaugural Imperial County Hemp Summit & Expo took place this fall of 2019 in Imperial, California. Thousands of acres of prime farmland in the low desert of Southern California developed the region known as the Imperial Valley. Today, the Imperial Valley is one of the most productive agricultural centers in California and the United States, supplying the majority of vegetables to the nation during winter months. The region's abundant and affordable land and water, coupled with an optimal climate that allows for multiple growing cycles a year, have positioned Imperial County as an opportune region for industrial hemp.
