a word from our sponsors:
The Iowa Legislature has passed a measure legalizing industrial hemp production in the state, KHQA reports. The legislation passed the House 95-3 on Tuesday and 49-1 on Thursday. It moves next to Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds who, according to Brownfield Ag News, is expected to sign the bill.
Under the law, farmers will be permitted to grow up to 40 acres of the crop which will be monitored by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship.
State Rep. Jarad Klein, himself a farmer, called the bill’s success “a win” for customers, retailers, and farmers.
“Allow the building of the infrastructure of this market now, so that when it comes time for our farmers to harvest their crops, there will be a robust demand and an outlook for industrial hemp.” – Klein in an interview with KHQA
