Rock River Lab to Offer Testing Analysis for Hemp
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 07/12/2019

The Rock River Laboratory in Watertown will provide hemp analysis services for growers and processors starting in 2019. The facility will offer testing for hemp soil and plant tissue samples for standard agronomic nutrient analysis, along with plant moisture, and soil pesticide screens.

"As the hemp industry grows exponentially, the necessity for accurate analysis of this crop accentuates," says Zachery Meyer, Rock River's operation director. "We're excited to not only be one of the first labs in the state of Wisconsin to offer hemp-specific soil and plant tissue analysis, as well as potency analysis, but to also help farmers and processors find success with their crop."

Accurate, regular lab analyses can now be run throughout the hemp growing season, including testing of the cannabinoid profile to help growers prepare for harvest. Delta 9-THC production tracking in hemp helps plan the growing timeline and guard against surprises at harvest, while regular CBD production analysis assists in forecasting and future crop decisions.

Rock River Laboratory is certified by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture for soil analysis and participates in the hemp industry's only proficiency program, administered by the University of Kentucky.
