Uncharted territory - Colorado hashes out hemp for dryland farms

The Fence Post
Alfonzo Abeyta’s fields this summer in Antonito, Colo., looked much like they would any other season.

Despite the year’s low prices for feed and grain, the fifth-generation farmer and rancher planted 130 acres of sorghum, a reliable choice for the dry climate in Southern Colorado.

If Abeyta had his way, however, he would not have planted sorghum, alfalfa, wheat or any of the other expected crops for his region.
