Now that the 2018 Farm Bill has passed, hemp cultivation has been federally legalized. While the recent Farm Bill made hemp a federally legal commodity, states needed to either create their own hemp programs or adapt the one set forth by the USDA. Now that the Texas hemp program has been USDA-approved, farmers can join the lucrative industry. With reports forecasting that the industrial hemp market will be worth $26.6 billion in the US by 2025, this is an excellent time to consider hemp farming. For local farmers and entrepreneurs interested in joining this exciting new industry, you have considerable research and planning you’ll need to execute before getting started. While you may want to jump in head first, it’s wise to ensure that you have a comprehensive understanding of the local hemp market, both local and federal regulations, as well as the agricultural requirements of industrial hemp.
