Hemp Genetics International

Bish Enterprise - Hemp Harvest Works

Welcome to the world of Hemp Genetics International (HGI)! We focus on developing industrial hemp genetics for grain production. We supply farmers and processors with regionally adapted hemp grain varieties to help reduce production risk and to help grow this exciting new industry.

We have been conducting agronomic research and actively farming industrial hemp since its re-introduction into Canada in 1998. Back then, Canada imported varieties from Europe, and farmers struggled to work with non-adapted varieties (way too tall!) in a market that was primarily interested in grain. Recognizing that trying to grow dual purpose (fiber and grain) varieties would be a barrier to the growth of the hemp grain industry in Canada, we started to develop hemp grain varieties that farmers could grow using existing equipment on their farms. Since then, HGI has contributed significantly to the growth of the Canadian hemp grain industry through improved varieties, advanced seed technology and a greater understanding of sound agronomic practices that help make industrial hemp a “farmer friendly” crop.

Note to Non-Canadian producers. HGI respects the international treaties on plant genetics and the laws of sovereign countries in respect to industrial hemp cultivation.

Farmer Friendly Grain Varieties

Hemp Genetics International is constantly researching and developing ways to make hemp production “farmer friendly”. A farmer friendly hemp variety must be high yielding, and easily harvested with conventional equipment commonly found on today’s grain farms. To be farmer friendly, hemp must be as easy to grow, harvest and store as any other crop option available to the farm. Also, the varieties have to be acceptable by the processing industry and the end consumer.
Our HGI pedigreed hemp seed varieties are adapted to a wide range of growing conditions and climate zones for both conventional and organic production.

History

With beginnings in 2002, and incorporation in 2008. The goal of HGI remains development of the best, high yielding regionally adapted hemp grain varieties.
