New West Genetics is on a mission to contribute solutions to climate challenges faced by agriculture.
Revolutionizing the Hemp Industry
Our genomics assisted breeding program enables the targeted development of superior varieties that lay a strong foundation for the rapidly expanding hemp industry.
Revolutionizing the Hemp Industry
New West Genetics is the global leader in creating premium, stable hemp seed genetics that are enhanced for food, feed, and fiber applications to serve the growing population and mitigate climate challenges. We combine traditional breeding, modern genomics, and agronomic expertise to create non-GMO hemp seed bred for high-yield, enhanced nutrition, and sustainable production.
ABOUND® Multi-Purpose hemp seed varieties
Current conditions in the market make dual or multi cropping the best practice, both for ROI, and sustainability. As specs in each vertical are refined, single purpose with those well-bred end traits will become a larger part of the genetic foundation of the industry.
Our ABOUND multi-purpose hemp seed gives growers the ability to valorize all parts of the plant. These varieties have been bred for excellent grain yield, as well as flower weight and CBD content. Our ABOUND varieties are top yielding, and won first place in University trials for stalk biomass and grain yield.
There’s something for everyone in the ABOUND family!
AMPLIFY™ Hybrid Trait
We are proud to introduce AMPLIFY is a non-GMO hybrid trait that genetically skews the ratio of female to male plants from 50:50 to 90:10 or higher. This in concert with the hybrid vigor doubles grain and flower yield, as well as greatly increases the uniformity of stalks in the field.
This dramatic yield increase and uniformity enables hemp to compete with the likes of soy and cotton, opening the door to adoption for food, feed, fiber, and sustainable fuels markets.
We identify complex traits at the gene level. This helps us identify which selections to make quicker, getting you premium stable hemp seed at a much faster pace than traditional breeding alone.
We use genomic data to inform selections for yield increase, and for more complex issues like cannabinoid profile enhancement and stability, disease resistance, improved nutrition, and hybrid seed system creation.
Success starts at the seed
First US-bred Certified hemp seed
New West Genetics was the first US company to breed stable hemp seed varieties with the most desirable market traits.
Our hemp seed is non-GMO, with enhanced nutritional qualities, fiber qualities, and enhanced cannabinoids.
High-germination, field vigor, and adapted genetics created by our cutting edge breeding program brings customers the most uniform, high performing genetics on the market.
Our hemp seed is adapted to local soil and climate, and possesses multiple high-yielding traits with superior agronomic characteristics to enhance production efficiency.
Every variety released has third party demonstration of THC compliance. Our varieties have received independent validation from the CDA, AOSA and AOSCA four years running
Our foundational research combines traditional breeding and modern genomics to ensure stable, certified, hemp seed. Our varieties are bred using proprietary methods and our extensive pedigree database to optimize large-scale production.
Our mission is to improve economic access to this versatile and valuable plant by building a sustainable foundation for the hemp production industry.
Our experienced scientists are well-respected professionals in the field of plant genetics and breeding –demonstrated through their success in the rice, wheat, barley, sorghum and canola industries.
We are published in leading journals, and are grant recipients from the USDA, DOE, NSF, and ARPA-E. Naturally, we give many keynote addresses at plant genetics conferences.
