S1084: Industrial Hemp Production, Processing, and Marketing in the U.S. multi-state research project
New West Genetics’ leaders present on Hemp Genetics & Breeding and Seed Production & Markets at the S1084 Annual Hemp Industry Research Meeting today. This meeting gathers industry leaders and research collaborators for the S1084: Industrial Hemp Production, Processing, and Marketing in the U.S. multi-state research project. This research is essential to the development of the industry through identification of improved hemp genetics and best agronomic management practices for hemp on a regional basis. Research updates and meeting outcomes to be announced! Project Overview —> https://www.nimss.org/projects/view/mrp/outline/17716
Oregon State University’s Global Hemp Innovation Center, National Hemp Industry Research Needs Workshop: Hemp Genetics and Breeding Needs– Wendy Mosher Excerpt: "New West Genetics has the longest running U.S hemp breeding program; we create U.S adapted high-yielding certified hemp seed for various markets and our varieties are bred for scaled AG production systems and possess traits that improve ROI for farmers and Processors. You can see on the map where we've focused a lot of our efforts since 2014 our genetics have been developed trialed and sold across 26 States and four countries. The cornerstones of our program really are these two gentlemen highlighted here Dr. Richard Fletcher and Dr John McKay. Dr. Rich Fletcher led Cargill's canola breeding program for the last half of his 18 years with Cargill. Canola is very applicable comparable to hemp because it has a nice lipid profile - hemps is better! He's been able to transfer a lot of knowledge to how we create and move our breeding program forward. Dr John McKay is a professor of plant genetics at Colorado State University. He is very well known for identifying the complex trait of drought. When we say complex trait we mean something that's controlled by multiple genes, and this is very applicable to hemp because cannabinoids are all complex traits. It isn’t simple but that's been very useful kind of thinking for experimental design and stabilization of cannabinoids. More recently in his career, for the last eight years he's been working [...]
Moving Hemp Forward with Mandi Kerr, Eric Singular, and Wendy Mosher NWG CEO, Wendy Mosher, and International Hemp’s Eric Singular talk about the Value The Seed initiative with Mandi Kerr on Moving Hemp Forward with GHA. They discuss the history of Certified seed, what Certified seed means for farmers, and why this initiative benefits producers and regulators. The Value the Seed Initiative supports a strong foundation for the growth of the US hemp industry.
