NWG 331 Elite Hemp Grain & Fiber Variety

NWG 331

Certified in 2019 and launched commercially in 2020, NWG 331 is part of our ELITE family of hemp seed varieties bred for high stalk and grain yields. NWG 331 is unique inits ability to produce high stalk yields while maintaining an earlier maturity date to mitigate the risk of early fall frosts. It was highlighted by a University of Kentucky study for its high economic returns to growers due to good grain and stalk yields.
