Hemp: Identifying issues across the value chain
This section will discuss the lessons learned about the production/consumption economics of hemp since its declassification as a Schedule 1 and its inclusion in the 2018 Farm Bill. Presenters will focus on cross-pollination issues, agronomic issues, consumer CBD preferences, and consumer awareness. Implications for production, markets, rural development and policy are woven through the presentations.

Jane Kolodinsky will moderate this CRENET Virtual Session, which will feature four presentations:

"Hemp Production Network Effects: Farmers grapple with cross-pollination issues" with Jeffrey Young, assistant professor, agribusiness economics at Murray State University

"An Overview of the United States Hemp Pilot Programs from 2014-2019-What’s Ahead?" with Tyler Mark, associate professor, University of Kentucky Department of Agricultural Economics

"Who is Buying CBD?" with Trey Malone, assistant professor, Michigan State University Department of Agricultural, Food, and Resource Economics
