The expected return of hemp to Missouri fields next year means an increased need for research into how to make it an effective addition to farmers’ crop rotations. Babu Valliyodan of Lincoln University says it’s a similar situation to when soybeans began to take root in the state nearly a century ago.
Valliyodan says another priority will be to find the right seed varieties for Missouri.
Valliyodan says research undertaken at Lincoln will become available for producers through their network of Extension offices.
