Big News for US Hemp Farmers!
A few months ago, we put out a call for your help to gather data for the development of a federal multi-peril crop insurance program for hemp, providing adorable crop insurance options for U.S farmers. The initiative was a partnership between our sister organization, the US Hemp Farming Alliance and AgriLogic, a leading consulting firm in the space. Many of you responded with needed data concerning yield, prices and volume.
We are thrilled to report today that that USDA announced that a pilot multi-peril crop insurance program will be available to hemp farmers in 21 states in time for the 2020 growing season. Read all the great details here.
Thanks so much to all Hemp Supporters for your help in delivering such a needed program at a critical time for U.S. hemp farmers. We hope you have a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, and joyful holiday season.
