    Why Hemp Isn’t Going to Save the US Farmer (But How It Could)

    By The Crossover

    Published Aug 16

    So why am I skeptical? I think the major challenges regarding hemp production can be lumped into two main categories: 1) Growing it and 2) Actually profiting from it. Finally, the commoditization of hemp is going to be a major, major disappointment for producers who have gotten used to the profit of growing hemp in the past couple of years... Some hemp proponents were incredulous that a speaker, especially an extension agent, would put down this miracle plant that was going to save the family farm... Although legal to grow, there are still no pesticides that can legally be applied to hemp because they don’t yet have a “label” for use in that crop... You can only apply registered pesticides on the crops that the label allows...

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Apr 4, 2018

The forest Code was first adopted in 1965 as a way to allow farmers to purchase and farm land in the Amazon with the caveat that they may only farm a small percentage of the land. However, with the limited governmental ability to oversee the development of an enormous dense forest just slightly smaller than the continent of Australia, it wasn’t a surprise to anyone when eager farmers and cattlemen started to illegally clear additional land... The 2012 changes to the Forest Code changed all of that...

    But what makes some soils more productive than others? That’s a complicated question to answer, but we do know that the healthiest soils share some common characteristics... Roots, earthworms, bacteria, fungi, actinomycetes, algae, protozoa, nematodes, mites and small insects work together to help build soil aggregates (sand, silt and clay). Some of the characteristics of healthy soils are inherent, while others are dynamic and can be influenced by management decisions... On the other hand, when the C:N ratio is low, soil microbes consume all of the carbon, but leave the excess nitrogen in the soil for plants and other microorganisms to use... Small changes over short periods of time can improve farm productivity...

    Mark- First I would like to thank you for your service. It does not surprise me that you have chosen to be in agriculture. There are many parallels between it and the military. I would also like to thank you for the kind words. I have been fortunate to have been exposed to some of the best in the industry starting with my family. Being able to help others and share what I have learned along the way has been extremely rewarding. I look forward to hearing more about your journey as well.
