Assessing and Addressing Legal Risk and Opportunities for the Arkansas Edamame Industry



These materials were compiled with support from the Arkansas Department of Agriculture under the Specialty Crop Grant Program. The purpose of this project was to address legal topics that were unique to this developing industry. This grant included one workshop and several publications covering pesticide approval, labeling of non-genetically modified products, and crop insurance for edamame producers.

The materials for the workshops are included below and were distributed to the workshop attendees. For questions about the materials presented, please contact Rusty Rumley by phone at (479) 575-2636 or by email at
