2019 Wisconsin Hemp Marketing Study

The 2019 Wisconsin Hemp Marketing Survey was conducted during the 2019 growing season, in July 2019, but largely reflects dynamics of the industry in 2018, Wisconsin’s first year of legalized hemp production. Responses were collected from growers and processors through an online survey instrument, in-person conversations, and emails. Funding for this study was provided by the Renk Agribusiness Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
