Plant researchers discuss breeding priorities for stable hemp genetics

August 26, 2019

In an article by Hemp Industry Daily, they discuss the unique traits Front Range Biosciences is breeding for and trialing in order to supply the market with stable hemp genetics. FRB's CEO and Co-Founder, Dr. Jonathan Vaught, explains this process in an excerpt below:

"'We're looking at everything from regional performance and then also a few other important traits like cannabinoids. CBD is the one that everybody talks about, but there are others that are very interesting that we’re working on.'

"'Terpene profiles are certainly important and interesting. There are lots of traits, like pest resistance and just overall vigor and health of the plant.'

"'Flowering time – everything from day-neutral varieties or autoflowering varieties – all the way up to the longest flowering-cycle varieties that grow to be very big plants but that are slower to mature, and everything in between. Those are the core areas that we’re looking at in our breeding operation.'"
