HOLTVILLE — More than 80 visitors Saturday morning learned a little about hemp research and production through tours of the UC Agriculture and Natural Resources Desert Research and Extension Center and the Keithly Williams Seeds Nursery.

They also visited a farm in Calipatria on the southwest corner of Kalin and Eddins roads that grows hemp.
