At United American Hemp, we’re not just cultivators. We’re also avid researchers with a passion for science who have invested a great deal into studying all aspects of the cannabis plant, from cultivation methods to end-uses. We gather data to expand our knowledge and understanding of traditional processes and further the development of new technology and techniques.
Genetics & Genomics
Plant genetics are vitally important to any industrial hemp growing operation. Whether it’s choosing the ideal cultivar for a specific set of growing conditions, making science-based propagation decisions or identifying gender within a crop, the use of genetics can provide significant value to any cultivation operation. At United American Hemp, we utilize in-house marker-assisted breeding, genetic analysis and gender identification to more precisely refine the cultivation process. The goal: more consistent harvests with higher yields and a reduction in overall risk factors.
Marker assisted breeding
Many aspects of cannabis cultivation are, and will continue to be, an art. However, at United American Hemp, we believe science can play a major role in the development of consistent and repeatable production processes for industrial hemp. For this reason, we collect hundreds of data points, invest in cutting-edge equipment, perform detailed data analysis and test our findings directly within our own cultivation facilities. This commitment to constant refinement allows our cultivation efforts to improve in efficiency, consistency and overall quality.
Harvesting / Drying Technology
Data collection & analysis
Growing methods can vary greatly and present a complicated decision regarding which is the best for a particular set of production goals, environmental factors, grower experience and cultivar. Whether it’s choosing indoor, outdoor or a combination, greenhouse, hoophouse or a hybrid, soil-based, soil-less, hydroponics, aquaponics, aeroponics, or a mix of mediums, each variable provides its own set of challenges and opportunities. We seek to unbundle the complexity of this decision-making process by performing research on the numerous cultivation methods for growing cannabis.
