Pyxus International, Inc, Enters into a Hemp Research Partnership with NC State University


Hemp Research Partnership with NC State University


Pyxus International, Inc., has entered into a contract with NC State University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences to finance research intended to find out the effects of using different fertility rates on hemp crop cultivated in a greenhouse. Pyxus International, Inc., is a value-added agricultural company.
The research will determine how different fertility rates affect cannabinoids and CBD quality and quantity. The study will also be identifying and quantifying the overall growth of the hemp plant. Besides, the research finding will be used to fill in the knowledge gaps in hemp production, which would, in turn, help growers to maximize their operations by growing the highest-quality crops.
The Executive Vice President of Global Specialty Products at Pyxus International, Bryan Mazur, said that the research outcome would help establish best practices for hemp growth. The methods would then be taught to the farmers to enable them to produce better, reliable, and high-quality sources of cannabinol (CBD). The CBD could then be infused in products such as the affiliate Criticality’s Korent and Korent Select brands.
This is the second partnership Pyxus International has signed in 2019. In August, Pyxus signed an agreement with Cornell University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences to fund a study designed to pinpoint and fill knowledge gaps on hemp production by evaluating CBD hemp cultivars and cannabinoid production.
Mazur further said that the results of these studies would provide farmers with valuable data and insight. Consumers would also be in a position to understand hemp and CBD through the research findings. He also said that the company values the work of the NC researchers as they have made notable milestones in the hemp industry. Mazur further noted that Pyxus is excited to work with NC to advance the knowledge on hemp for farmers and consumers in North Carolina and across the globe.
The professor and Extension specialist in commercial floriculture production for NC State, Brain Whipker, said that there is a massive interest in hemp production. He also added that even though there is progress in terms of research, there is still much more to learn about efficient and profitable methods of cultivating hemp. Whipker also noted that the NC state would be able to advance the research on hemp through the funding partnership with Pyxus.
The research partnership between Pyxus and NC State will assist in stabling best practices for growing hemp. This project is expected to end in 2022.
