Texas indoor hemp farm Power Biopharms signs on as an agricultural contributor to a new study being conducted at Prairie View A&M University, allowing them to participate in research that can be a difference maker for future market potential.

Conducted by the Prairie View A&M University’s Department of Agriculture, Nutrition, and Human Ecology, the three-year research study is being executed to determine if hemp biomass can be a viable alternative animal feed, which could reduce the use of grain, thus resulting in positive impacts for the environment and other economic factors.

Led by Negusse Kidane, Ph.D., the project has been awarded funding from the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), and it will focus on understanding the chemical composition and nutritional value of hemp extraction residues.

“We are honored to be a part of this multi-year project with Prairie View A&M University,” said Colt Power, Founder and CEO of Power Biopharms. “There is still so much to learn about the potential of this plant, and we could not think of a more exciting way to contribute. Results from this study could equal new commercial opportunities for the hemp industry while also decreasing waste and pollution, something that we can all be enthusiastic about.”

Power Biopharms is one of several licensed hemp producers in the State of Texas that are participating by sending biomass to the university. As an indoor farm, Power Biopharms’ continuous growing capacity allows for contributions throughout the year, no matter the season.
