Midwestern Hemp Database looking for grower participation

Participants will receive discounted cannabinoid testing.
Midwestern Hemp Database seeks growers to participate in 2021 program

The Midwestern Hemp Database is a collaboration between land-grant institutions and private laboratories in the Midwest. The goal of this project is to provide regional insight into agronomic performance and cannabinoid development of industrial hemp varieties. The project is seeking participation by growers to submit field samples and data in exchange for discounted cannabinoid profiling. In short, participation in this program provides an exciting opportunity to receive significantly discounted cannabinoid profiling at $35 per sample.

This project is made possible through a partnership with several private laboratories, including Rock River Laboratory Inc., Pride Analytics and Consulting (Wisconsin) and ACT laboratories (Illinois). In 2020, over 130 hemp growers participated in this project and results from the 2020 growing season are available. Links to variety trial reports from partnering universities may also be found in the 2020 report.

To determine eligibility, read the project overview. To participate in this project, fill out the online survey. Prospective participants will be alerted of their inclusion into the program soon after submitting applications. The application period closes July 16, 2021.

If you have any questions or are interested in participating in this program, please contact Phillip Alberti at palberti@illinois.edu or 217.300.7392.
