Hemp: Made In America
With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp is poised to become a multi-billion dollar mainstream commodity in the United States, boosting state economies and the revenues of farms, big and small. However, in keeping with the birthing — or, in this case, the rebirthing — of an industry fraught with regulatory challenges, it is vital that state and territorial departments of agriculture, growers and processors work together to avoid unnecessary and potentially costly missteps.
As one of the industry’s leading innovators and trusted providers of advanced aerial image-based data collection and analytics solutions for the precision farming and sustainable agriculture markets, AgEagle is intent on leveraging our expertise to champion the use of proven, advanced web- and map-based technologies as a means to streamline and ultimately standardize hemp cultivation regulatory oversight, compliance and enforcement. Growers need to be registered/permitted; crops need to be monitored and inspected; and enforcement operations must be established to ensure compliance with anticipated new state and federal mandates.
Through the introduction of our HempOverview solution, AgEagle represents the first agriculture technology company to bring to market an advanced Agtech solution that is designed to meet the unique complexities of the emerging American hemp industry and the needs and demands of its key stakeholders.
