Hemp for Farmers

The Eagle

Texas farmers soon will be able to legally plant fields of hemp for the first time since the 1930s.

The Texas A&M AgriLife Hemp Team traveled across the state this winter holding meetings in halls packed full of farmers who paid $20 each to learn about pitfalls and possibilities of industrial hemp production. 

“There’s a lot of hype out there about growing hemp, but Texas farmers know where to go for the straight facts,” said John Sharp, chancellor of The Texas A&M University System. “AgriLife experts have advised growers for more than 100 years, cultivating a level of trust and credibility they appreciate.”
