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

    By The Crossover

    Published 1 month ago

    In late 2018, a new farm bill was passed that legalized the production of hemp as an agricultural commodity while also removing it from the list of “controlled substances”. The Gold Rush of the modern farming era was on. The farming industry was buzzing with new information on how to grow and market this miracle plant. Hemp farming was going to not only save the modern row crop farmer but also make him wealthy in the process...

    Magnesium’s effect is essential for grape,it can be called “a large number of elements” for grapes,and the demand is simliar to phosphorus. Even the magnesium content of grape leaves is higher than that of phosphorus.

    The legendary Joel Salatin weighed in on this article with advice on how to find the perfect intern! https://agfuse.com/article/how-to-source-farm-interns

    Posted By Gregory Heilers
    1 years, 4 months ago

    This is a great point, Mark. I totally agree that trade skills are "endangered." The stereotypical "farm laborer" certainly possesses some of these skills, and I appreciate your point that outsourcing those is very costly.

    On the farm I have most recent experience working on, my dad's lucky to have a wonderful jack of all trades. This man has his own shop a dozen miles from the farm, where he can repair almost any malfunctioning machinery, and he just charges the $20/hr he does for any other work on farm. That same work done in town would cost significantly more, plus you'd need to add time and fuel costs for loading, hauling, and unloading the equipment - both ways.

    I think Joel Salatin was also, in part, speaking to your point when he mentioned that he'd “take the guy who can move 5,000 chickens in 60 minutes with nothing more than a hand dolly over the technocrat.” The quote taken out of context doesn't perfectly align, but I believe the sentiment is similar.

    I appreciate your thoughts, and the fact that you are bringing a wealth of expertise to an industry that certainly will benefit from it!
