In this episode of the No-Till Farmer podcast, brought to you by Montag Manufacturing, Casey Seymour of Moving Iron LLC sits down with Kristen Nichols of Hemp Industry Daily for an overview of the hemp industry and the opportunities in agriculture.
Kristen has been covering the marijuana legalization movement since 2009 and wrote about Colorado’s first legal hemp harvest. She has also covered agriculture and politics in Maryland and her home state of Georgia.
In talking with Casey, Kristen shares insights into the production of hemp and what growers need to know and consider now that industrial hemp is no longer classified as a controlled substance.
She discusses the legal definition of hemp, the hype about potential market growth, how interstate commerce will be affected by the new law and much more. Anyone who is even marginally interested in growing hemp is going to want to tune in.
