Economics of the California Cut Flower Industry and Potential Impacts of Legal Cannabis

A new study to understand the potential impact of cut-flower agribusiness land usage with the January 2018 legalization of cannabis production in California concludes there is no evidence it will affect the state’s ability to produce nearly 80 percent of the nation’s cut flower production. The study by Dr. Daniel Sumner of the University of California Agricultural Issues Center (AIC) at UC Davis points out that economic barriers will continue to limit how much greenhouse space is actually converted into legal cannabis production and concludes the state’s cut-flower output should generally remain stable.
