Max Armstrong shares a look at the value of hemp in the crop rotation and efforts in Minnesota

Max Armstrong shares information that the hemp crop is getting more attention in agriculture with farmers looking at more opportunities for the crop. In Minnesota, farmers are planting industrial hemp on thousands of acres. The program started as a pilot in the state, but has since expanded. Industrial hemp became an illegal crop until 2018 with the new farm bill.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
