We’re expert in bringing innovative traits through advanced breeding and gene editing to crops like wheat, soybeans and other complex plant genomes. Now, we’re turning that expertise to an ancient crop with GoodHemp™.

GoodHemp delivers superior emergence and growth characteristics, available as both seeds and transplant starts. Our Complia varieties help growers meet compliance requirements because of their ultra-low THC profiles. On top of that, some GoodHemp varieties are also tolerant to a variety of diseases.

Hemp has a long way to go to become an industrialized crop in the US. With inconsistent quality and significant waste, there is a burning demand for quality genomics and agronomic excellence. And with the recent USDA guidelines requiring the destruction of “hot crops” with more than 0.3% THC, unstable seeds can lead to huge losses for hemp farmers – losses that aren’t covered by crop insurance.

That’s why we created GoodHemp, a commercial pipeline of superior non-GMO hemp seed varieties created with modern crop innovation tools focused on genetic improvement of hemp. GoodHemp varieties improve plant quality and productivity—working within federal legal guidelines.

Please view our videos below about GoodHemp varieties Umpqua, Rogue, and Santiam below, as well as a tour of the Iverson Family Farms in Woodburn, OR.

*Iverson Family Farms Tour*
Take a tour of the Iverson Family Farms in Woodburn, OR to learn about the maturing Umpqua GoodHemp™ varietal. Topics include crop densities, crop harvesting, succession cropping, fiber types, and a conversation about the positive impacts that GoodHemp can have on people.

*Umpqua Variety*
The Umpqua variety is an an early maturing and flowering plant that is also a full-season variety (season length is early/late September). Characteristics of the Umpqua variety includes having a very dominant leader, many colas and branches, and a good leaf-to-flower ratio. This plant also has good airflow that can help with disease resistance.

*Rogue Variety*
The Rogue variety is different from Umpqua in that it is more of a bush/shrub style that lacks a dominant leader. It also has many lateral branches to maximize the benefits of the sun, as well as fill the crop rows more than Umpqua. Because of this, Rogue is a plant that is better designed for wider spacing. The density and structure of the plant can produce a higher yield than that of many others.

*Santiam Variety*
The Santiam variety is a true F1 hybrid and will be ready for market in 2021. This variety is unique in that it has dusty pink pistols and compact flowers throughout the base of the plant. This variety shares lineage with the GoodHemp™ Rogue variety, but this variety doesn’t have the same bushy characteristic, but rather a more tapered top. The Santiam variety also has good airflow which can minimize disease pressure.

Positive Traits.

In hemp production, there are still many questions. We don’t think whether your seed can be trusted should be one of them. We’re the only proven crop innovator now focusing our nearly 20 years of genomics, crop breeding and bioinformatics on hemp. We know crop improvement – whether to combat diseases, improve yields or upgrade qualities desired by consumers, we’ve done it. And now we’re doing it for hemp.

Ingredients of Growth.

Today’s GoodHemp varieties offer productivity, pest resistance and crop quality improvements to the farm. And as our GoodHemp portfolio continues to grow, we’re aiming to convert our years of plant science and industry experience, our proven regulatory compliance practices and our trusted relationships with global food and wellness companies to a vibrant, dynamic hemp supply chain.
