AMPLIFY is a non-GMO hybrid trait that genetically skews the ratio of female plants.
The hybrid vigor doubles grain and flower yield, as well as increases the uniformity of stalks in the field. This dramatic yield increase and uniformity allows hemp grain to compete with traditional oil-seeds, plant proteins, and bio-materials, opening the door to adoption for food, feed, fiber, and sustainable fuels markets.
The AMPLIFY hybrid trait shows strong heterosis with increased uniformity and vigor, resulting in additional risk mitigation, ease of harvest, and bump for yields. Timeline for commercialization:
2023: Initial seed production, variety demonstration across the US, and AOSCA certification approval.
2024: Pilot commercial launch with strategic processing partners.
2025: AMPLIFY 10 & AMPLIFY 12 widely commercially available.
Substantial acreage must be contracted one year prior to commercial season. Existing customers of NWG ABOUND® varieties have preferred access to the AMPLIFY trait.
AMPLIFY hybrids approved by AOSCA for Certified seed status
This approval represents the first industrial hemp hybrids to be recognized by the AOSCA Variety Review Board. NWG hybrid varieties are the result of a patent-pending genetic trait called AMPLIFY, a genetic gender skew defined by the presence of approximately 90% female plants and 10% male plants.
