Economic & Legal Considerations for Hemp Production in Texas
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 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. The survey can be accessed by a QR code at the end of each video in the series.
