New Pictures From the NCSU Industrial Hemp Trials in Western NC
On August 8 we held our annual Alternative Crops and Organics Field Day at the Mountain Research Station in Waynesville, NC. One of the most popular stops on the tour was our Industrial Hemp variety trial and planting method study. Pictured above are Leo Stefanile and Margaret Bloomquist who work in my program in western North Carolina and Zeke Overbaugh, a graduate student working with faculty in eastern North Carolina. While examining our plots, these three pulled up a plant from a grain variety (the one on the left) and a fiber variety (one on the right). Look at the difference in plant height and root growth. Below is a close-up of those roots.
And here are a few more pictures from our industrial hemp trials at the Mountain Research Station in Waynesville.
