and pest and herbicide reduction is from 2005.

While the U.S. has not had legal hemp for a long time, other nations have. The citations from the 2005 study note the reduction in the need for either pesticides or herbicides.

That study also notes that the overwhelming use of pesticides concerns cotton farming.

If hemp was useful as a rotation crop for the above reasons in 2005, it was also useful for the same reasons in 1905.

eta: the Purdue study was from 2002 and utilized reports from European hemp growers since 1999.

The University of Kentucky profile was published in 2013 and the majority of its sources are later than 1999 and most are from the last decade.

The Congressional Research Survey report was from 2013 and the majority of research cited is from the last decade.

It would almost seem as though you were cherry-picking to support your own belief.
