"We hope that it will be a valuable tool for our producers who are considering hemp, " shared Justin Benavidez, assistant professor of agricultural economics at Texas A&M AgriLife. "There's a lot of risk in that market and so, we hope that by viewing these videos, you get a better idea of the risks involved in producing hemp and you can sort of decide for yourself, with a more informed and educated set of facts, whether or not hemp production is for you."

Justin Benavidez, Texas A&M University

President's Message

Dawn Thilmany
AAEA President

February 2021

It has been a busy couple of months for the AAEA, with a successful slate of sessions T.W. Schulz lecture “Reconsidering the Economics of Identity: Position, Power, and Property” at the ASSA meetings in January, and hundreds of great selected paper and organized symposia submissions flowing in as we plan for the 2021 Annual meetings.  As you might imagine, we are thinking hard about our plan for 2021, including a few hybrid alternatives that would allow us planning flexibility.  Beyond the Annual meetings, it has been increasingly clear that our membership will be best served with a more diverse set of activities year-round, even though the Annual gathering may continue to be a keystone event.  So, let me share a bit of what we are considering, and stay tuned for more information on 2021 events.
