Why Should You Attend:
With the passage of the “Farm Bill” in February 2014, there has been an explosion of state-based industrial hemp research and pilot programs. Section 7606 (Legitimacy of Industrial Hemp Research) defines industrial hemp as distinct and authorizes institutions of higher education or state agriculture departments to conduct research and pilot programs. By 2015, 27 states had passed laws authorizing hemp cultivation in accordance with the 2013 Farm Bill and nine states harvested industrial hemp crops by the end of the year. This marks one of the most significant shifts in US agriculture in 50 years’ however, much of the knowledge of past hemp cultivation has faded and new technologies and approaches to farming have been introduced.
This webinar will explain the history of hemp cultivation in the United States and describe the more recent hemp movement and the sociopolitical factors that contributed to the current state of affairs. The major state-based industrial hemp regulatory programs will be summarized and compared, allowing potential market entrants to understand where opportunities may exist. The ability of industrial hemp to anchor the new sustainable bioeconomy and to contribute to state fiscal and general health will be explored.
