We pride ourselves knowing our industrial hemp cultivar X-59 possess a natural, NON-GMO, genome which bests our competition! Not only does X-59 have the sweet nutty flavor sought after by consumers, but as part of Minnesota's industrial hemp pilot program, the University of Minnesota has determined that Legacy Hemp's X-59 seed cultivar is consistently one of the highest yielding hemp grains. This determination was derived after testing 11 of the highest hemp oil-seed cultivars on the market. According to this Minnesota study, X-59 averages between 1000 and 1400 lb per acre with 600lb per acre being profitable! Talk about bang for your buck!
