How hemp in working out for South Dakota producers

This video is from SDPB's news program, South Dakota Focus.

Farming is a family tradition for many around the state. When a brand new crop enters the rotation, it could mean big opportunities for an operation's future.

This is the second year farmers and ranchers can try their hand at raising hemp.

Legalizing industrial hemp was a key topic in recent legislative sessions. And now, someone who was instrumental in bringing the crop to the state is preparing to plant it for the first time.
