Re: Bioversity International
The international genebank is for research purposes only. The only time plants are introduced for non-research purposes is if they are trying to introduce a new variety into an area that needs it for small scale production of subsistence farming for the local people. If profit is going to be made on the material, payment must be made back to Bioversity. Every time material is transferred, a material transfer agreement must be signed and moved along with it. They have rules and regulations setup to avoid exactly this, using the genebank for commercial purposes, because they have limited resources and are research based. If members here honestly want to perform research with the material, it is available to you for free, but ordering and growing the plants just for the sake of it is wrong in my opinion.
The only hemp Im growing is Manila.
