Listed author(s):
  • Michael Bennett

There has been considerable interest recently in alternative cropping opportunities for US grain producers. One crop that has received significant interest has been industrial hemp. Hemp production has essentially been non-existent in the US since the 1950's. The purpose of this paper is to summarize the current state of knowledge relative to opportunities for domestic commercial hemp production.
