Subject: Economic & Legal Considerations for Hemp Production in Texas - Video Series
A group AgriLife Extension Economists recently released, "The Economic and Legal Considerations for Hemp Production in Texas", a series of videos completed with funding from the Southern Risk Management Education Center. The series will provide a comprehensive set of tools for managing economic and legal risks during the production of hemp. You can find the video series at:
This video series details:
- An overview of the hemp plant, and basics of hemp production
- The laws and regulations to know and comply with when producing hemp in Texas
- A brief overview of budgets for hemp production
- Crop insurance for hemp
- The FARM Assistance program and its potential uses when growing hemp.
The series is completely free to all viewers. We hope that you will watch the videos yourselves and distribute to your clientele. We also ask that even if you only view a single video from the series that you take the survey, which will help with our grant reporting.
If you have any questions regarding the video series, please feel free to reach out to us.
