Update on Industrial Hemp in Oregon by Edgar Winters and Doug Fine

Static Preview

Interview with Oregon Farmer, Edgar Winters of the Oregon Agricultural Food and Rural Consortium (OAFRC) and author and hemp advocate Doug Fine.

Will Edgar the first hemp licensee in Oregon for industrial hemp be able to get seeds in the ground before times runs out to plant this spring? Maybe, but it will have to be through 7606 Federal Farm Bill provision which permits "agricultural pilot programs."

This is an old commodity, king of all plants, and we need to build the domestic seed stock and get things rolling and see positive results in terms of rural economic development. Produced by Barry Heidt.
