Cool resource from Colorado Department of Agriculture! "The Hemp Networking Directory is where Colorado growers, manufacturers, processors, and consumers connect in support of a strong future in our hemp industry. CDA is creating the Directory to broaden collaboration opportunities for Colorado’s hemp production. To uplift our state’s growing industry, CDA is working to strengthen the hemp supply chain by connecting the different segments of producers, processors and end users to facilitate domestic supply chain continuity. Through the directory, CDA is working to spark connections and increase collaboration between businesses in the industry and those who are looking to expand or start anywhere along the hemp supply chain.” The Colorado Hemp Networking Directory
The new NWG AMPLIFY trait in Demonstration Fields this Summer 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 allows hemp grain to compete with the likes of soy and cotton, opening the door to adoption for food, feed, fiber, and sustainable fuels markets. AMPLIFY is a trait that can be bred into most hemp genetics. Demonstration fields will be growing across the country this season, so we hope you get the chance to see these genetics in action. Stay tuned for Field Day information. Contact NWG for licensing opportunities.
