Co-op helps build an Hemp Industry in Zimbabwe

Last year the Co-op sent 16 different varieties of seed to Zimbabwe to allow them to research the growing patterns of industrial hemp in Zimbabwe.

The Tobacco research centre in Zimbabwe contacted the Co-op and asked us to help them source seed for reserach.  It was a perfect request because we had on hand 16 varieties of seed we had purchased for the Best Seed for Region trials in WA. 

Sending this seed was a please as we really believe in helping people to find the answers about growing hemp.  Also we were as interested as they were in finding our what would grow in their climate - one very similar to WA except they have an eastern seaboard influence and so get a more humid summer than we do on the west.

The Hempgro Co-op is proud to be a part of this work and will continue to supply the Tobacco Research centre in Zimbabwe with seeds to build their knowledge and industry.
