Oregon Goes All in for Hemp Research
Oregon State University launches comprehensive hemp research center
Hemp has become the hot new crop once approved by the 2018 Farm Bill. But research into the crop has been fragmented across the country.
Oregon State University opened a new research center in June that could change all that, reports Western Farmer-Stockman.
The new Global Hemp Innovation Center will be based in OSU’s College of Agricultural Sciences with research taking place across the state and the world, according to a media announcement.
Hemp offers the promise to become a major ag commodity in the United States and abroad, with hemp plant fiber and hempseed oil put to use in a number of ways.
