Lab Receives SARE Partnership Grant to Evaluate High Cannabinoid Hemp Cultivars!

More great news from Ellison Lab! The lab has received a Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) Partnership Grant to further develop the Cultivar Check Program during the 2023 and 2024 growing seasons! The Cultivar Check Program utilizes an extensive grower-cooperator network to evaluate agronomic performance and cannabinoid development of  hemp (CBD and CBG dominant) cultivars across the Midwest.

More information on the Cultivar Check Program (and how to get involved) can be found at the UW Emerging Crops Webpage or by contacting Phil Alberti, Research Program Manager for Ellison Lab at

Stay tuned for more information on this project as it develops or follow along weekly throughout the growing season via SeedLinked. To follow along, you must be a registered user and join our network (!
