Seth Crawford, PhD, Co-founder of Oregon CBD, a leading developer of phytocannabinoid-rich industrial hemp varieties designed for large-scale production."Our development of triploids was borne out of the trauma of losing several crops to cross pollination events in 2016 and 2018, and hearing horror stories from growers year after year. Having a plant incapable of being pollinated fixes all of those issues and threats, and lets farmers put their energy into growing great crops instead of worrying. The presentation will describe the research and development required to create these certified organic and non-GMO novel plants, as well as the production processes used at Oregon CBD to make feminized hemp seed at scale."
