Industrial hemp: Seeds provide a great source of protein, better then most meats, and healthy also (this could be used to feed the hungry nations)
since hemp can grow in three months to maturity. And is very healthy for the soil it grows it, it produces very high amounts of oxygen, and the seeds
could also be used to make flour, and other food products.
Hemp can also be used to make cement like material which is water proof/anti bacterial/strong fibers for building homes or any type of structure.
Hemp can also be used to be textiles for clothing and other simple functions, such as paper and lumber material in general, that can be replaced in 3

Hemp oil could be used as fuel (the first car ever built was built out of hemp and ran on hemp oil) or cooking oil, the stronger Female plant of the
hemp family produces oils used for medication, such as head aches and pains, nausea and ect...
Plus, the jobs and industry it can create is massive, just like it did back in the day.
Just one option, but that would be my first for sure, a great, healthy, and environmentally safe industry. Plus it can be grown world wide depending
