To The Future…
Our future in agriculture is dependent upon on discovering new agribusiness solutions for the modern-day farmer. Sometimes in creating new solutions you must look to the past. Prior to the 1937 Marihuana Tax Act ,industrial hemp was one of the largest producing cash crops and was grown by 7 United States presidents including George Washington. During World War II farmers were encouraged to grow hemp for cordage, to replace Manilla Hemp.
The USDA produced a film explaining the cultivation and uses of hemp, called Hemp for Victory. This film illustrates that industrial hemp is indeed a viable crop for many purposes.
Why was hemp banned for production in the United States then you ask? Some surmise that when the decorticator was invented in the 1910’s it would pose a huge threat to the timber and cotton industries and some have likened the crop being lumped into marijuana at that time due to the threat that hemp fibers would have become a cheaper substitute in textile production. No matter what happened in history we know that hemp today is a 600-million-dollar industry in the U.S. and until just recently that industry was solely supported by overseas importation of hemp. Hemp in many countries was never made illegal unlike in the U.S. Fortunately in 2014 Congress enacted the Federal Farm bill which authorized the cultivation of hemp in the United States under specific State ran Agricultural Pilot Programs. These programs have proven to be successful for farmers when, consistent with the Farm Bill, they allow for research into the marketability of this crop. Our team has been at the forefront of the passage and implementation of several state ran programs that allow farmers the opportunity to profit from cultivating industrial hemp.
