Hemp Production Could Provide Boost to Ag Producers
Written by Andrew-Rossi on March 8, 2019
Gov. Mark Gordon has signed into law a measure that puts Wyoming on a viable path for industrial hemp production.
Christine Bekes with the Powell Economic Partnership said the ability to grow hemp could provide growers with a new cash crop.
Bekes points out that the growing market for industrial hemp, and the potential for the state to become a manufacturing hub for hemp-derived products, will be an immense benefit to the agricultural community.
