There’s a great argument for GMO hemp right there.
Can you say seedless?
I bet I could use extant data to design an unseedible strain. An inducibly seedable solution wouldn’t be much more difficult from a design stand point.
Might take four or five years to get the thing working, but that’s assuming I start from scratch. In a lab already doing tissue culture successfully, I might be able to manage three years or even two.
Anyone with such a lab &/or $500k to throw at the problem should hit me up
Edit: yeah, not a farmer. Was using insurance in general as my model. Would certainly expect “seeding” insurance to carry a premium that reflected the risk.
And I agree that acts of god, and acts of Billy-Bob, should be kept in separate categories
