Commercial breeding must be a market driven process, and New West Genetics planned for this from the start targeting all three markets as they came online with processing. In the early years of the US hemp market, that meant Food (grain) and Dietary supplements (cannabinoids). Beginning in 2018 we added fiber traits and targets.
Our company is on the cutting edge – creating entirely novel, trait enhanced seed genetics in order to optimize hemp for all market applications in North America. We see these markets as a golden opportunity for farmers in North America. Stable high performing genetics are essential to keep our industry competitive not only with other regions, but with other traditional product solutions. We enable competitive, healthy alternatives to traditional nutrition, fiber, and pharmaceutical pathways.
