University of Illinois Extension Commercial Agriculture Educator Phillip Alberti has announced that results of the 2020 Midwesetern Hemp Database are now at available at Go.illinois.edu/HempDatabase!
"The Midwestern Hemp Database leverages grower-collaborator networks to provide research backed, regional insight into agronomic performance and cannabinoid development of industrial hemp varieties. The report data is gathered from regional grower participants in exchange for discounted cannabinoid profiling for CBC, CBD, CBG, CBN, and THC, made possible by our generous partners, Rock River Laboratory, Inc. and Pride Analytics & Consulting.
If you are interested in participating in the future or would like further details, review the Grower Cooperation Form.
This project is made possible with proud collaboration between University of Illinois Extension (Phillip Alberti), Rock River Laboratory Inc., Pride Analytics & Consulting, University of Wisconsin-Madison (Dr. Shelby Ellison), Michigan State University Extension (James Dedecker), Purdue University Extension (Marguerite Bolt). Special thanks to the over 140 grower-collaborators who contributed to this project. For more information on project design and data collection, see the Grower Data Collection Protocol.
The Midwestern Hemp Database will continue in 2021 in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan as we look to expand to other states in the Midwest! More news will be shared via this email group as well as at our website in the coming weeks.
For those of you interested, keep an eye out for news related to upcoming industrial hemp programming throughout the winter and spring months. "
