    Lance Osborne, Juanita Popenoe, Zachary Brym, Alexandra Revynthi


    Industrial hemp, a variety of Cannabis sativa containing less than 0.03% THC, can be legally grown with permits in Florida. Due to its long-standing inclusion on the controlled substance list in the U.S., knowledge of its pests and diseases has been limited, and once, control measures were nonexistent.
