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

    By The Crossover

    Published 1 month ago

    By Fertility And Soils

    Published 8 months ago

    This is an unquestionably tough time to be a farmer. A trade war has beaten down already marginal prices, inputs have risen more than anyone could have predicted and many of us have experienced a so-called thousand-year weather event--not only once but twice in the last four years.
