Support the Hemp Research Gifts Fund!
The Kentucky Tobacco Research & Development Center and the UK Department of Plant & Soil Sciences are joint participants in the Kentucky Department of Agriculture's Industrial Hemp Pilot Research Program. The research within the College of Agriculture, Food & Environment, led by Dr. David Williams, is investigating agronomic parameters affecting field-scale production of industrial hemp. Experiments are aimed at optimizing yields of grain, fiber, and cannabinoids of interest.
Gifts to this fund will help to progress our knowledge of both hemp production and processing. At the same time, this support will contribute to the university mission of graduate education as many gifts will be used to fund train graduate students to participate in this research. This funding is particularly vital as federal research funding is not available for hemp research.
