The Measurement of Uncertainty Meets the Short End of the Stick

Episode 57: On this week’s show, we discuss the new interim rules put forth this week by the USDA and what these new rules might mean for hemp farmers, including why test results will be required to include a measurement of uncertainty.

But the main story this week comes from Kentucky, where farmers Ben Furnish and Kendall Henson are part of a group of farmers who are suing GenCanna Global USA Inc. in what looks like a classic case of farmers getting the short end of the stick. Again. Lots of lessons to learn here.
