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.
