Texas A&M AgriLife initiated hemp programming in 2019 and research in 2020. At least 14 Texas A&M faculty across the state are engaged in hemp research and education. Dr. Trostle will outline early research and education efforts. He will discuss a realistic assessment for cannabinoid, fiber, and grain hemp from the view of Texas A&M and our clientele. This includes pragmatic thinking about hemp in Texas and early issues encountered in field hemp production.
