Max Armstrong talks about the hot crop for 2019 – hemp – and some key market factors

Max Armstrong offers some insight into what Max saw about this year’s hemp production based on what he saw on his social media feed. He’s finding that there’s quite a scramble to this new crop and the opportunity of industrial hemp. Hemp acreage in the U.S. tripled from 2017 to 2018. But there are risks according to a CoBank analysis that farmers should know about.

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.
