AMPLIFY™ Hybrid Varieties

Hybrid Hemp Seed Varieties

AMPLIFY is a non-GMO hybrid trait that genetically skews the ratio of female: male plants from 50:50 to 90:10 or more, effectively doubling yield of flower and grain. This dramatic yield increase allows hemp grain to compete with the likes of soy and sorghum, opening the door to adoption for food, feed, 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. Pilot release in 2023, and a full commercial launch in 2024. Existing customers will have first access to this enhanced ROI variety.

Top Yielding, US Bred Hemp Seed

New West Genetics is pleased to introduce AMPLIFY; a family of hemp seed varieties with a genetic trait that doubles grain and flower yields.

The scientists at NWG have bred a breakthrough genetic trait that creates hemp populations with up to 99% female plants, rather than the typical 50%. Because female plants produce all the grain and flowers, and the best performing fiber, AMPLIFY increases yields for valuable hemp products along the supply chain, from growers to consumers, while still offering the ease of mechanical crop production.

The AMPLIFY genetic trait can be bred into your lines, contact us for licensing opportunities.

The best farmers don’t grow the biggest crop they grow the most economical crop. AMPLIFY hybrid hemp varieties offer a more vigorous crop that uses irrigation, fertility and climate conditions more efficiently than other varieties.

-Wilson, Blue Sky Hemp Ventures

AMPLIFY enables the transformation of hemp from a small acre specialty crop to a large-scale, commercially competitive hybrid crop.

AMPLIFY’s higher percentage of female plants, along with better overall seed performance, paves the way for doubling the yields seen today and enables the crop to compete with traditional protein and lipid sources like soy or canola. Ingredient makers, get ready now to include this incredibly nutritious protein and unique lipid source into your product line.

 

The AMPLIFY trait allows our seed producers to efficiently multiply seed at scale, unlike with traditional chemically feminized seed.  This edge makes it possible for our industry to market hemp as a viable alternative to traditional protein and healthy oil sources.
