Our multi-disciplinary team of scientists is doing cutting edge quantitative breeding, field trials, and agronomy.
Plant breeding 101: Our team uses various methods to create, select and fix superior plant phenotypes (i.e. the physical observable characteristics of an organism) in the development of improved cultivars (i.e. plant variety that has been produced by selective breeding) suited to the needs of farmers and consumers.
Thanks to the advanced academic and practical training of our team, we provide clients with high-quality support via detailed farming practices, guidance and recommendations for handling and caring for hemp throughout the cultivation, harvest and post-harvest process.
We are developing a large-scale state-of-the-art production operation in Illinois that will feature a quality-controlled environment to produce, manufacture and distribute hemp seeds. The Illinois location will also include a small R&D laboratory, where testing and some R&D will take place, as well as an outdoor planting area for outdoor trial purposes.
Each of our products will be tested in outdoor environments to ensure that you will enjoy the fruits of a reliable seed that you can count on come harvest time.
The anticipated deregulation of Cannabis in Mexico in the coming months opens new opportunities for hemp, Mexico is expected to follow the U.S.’s lead in terms of deregulating the hemp market; legislation is currently expected to be enacted by the end of 2020. Northshore Agriscience has also engaged the services of a reputable lobbying firm in Mexico, and who will be advocating on behalf of the hemp industry over the coming months.
As a result, we expect to leverage our international team to develop a large R&D campus that will conduct plant breeding and clinical studies in Mexico. This will allow more efficient development of hemp seeds for distribution in the U.S.
The success of a breeding program depends on two main factors:
To that end, an essential element of our research and development efforts is our Germplasm Repository or Seed bank. Northshore Agriscience is actively engaged in an effort to collect hemp seeds from around the world in order to build up the first comprehensive cannabis hemp gene bank in the world.
