Call for Illinois and Wisconsin hemp grower-collaborators

FREEPORT, Ill. — Are you curious about hemp variety performance in the Midwest? Would you find value in a publicly accessible variety evaluation tool?

What about receiving significantly discounted cannabinoid testing in exchange for data sharing via university and private partnerships?

The goal of a project between University of Illinois Extension and the University of Wisconsin-Madison will be to provide insight into agronomic performance and cannabinoid development of industrial hemp varieties across Illinois and Wisconsin.

Industrial hemp is a fast growing, annual herbaceous plant which can be used to produce fiber, grain and cannabinoids.


Notes:I``ll ask the 64 thousand dollar question, can a Wisconsin farmer grow product with a higher THC content and then ship it to Illinois for sale.
