Zinc biochemistry in Industrial Hemp (Cannabis sativa L.)

Research output: Contribution to conference (non-published works)Poster

Abstract

Industrial hemp is a sustainable material that can be used to produce plant-based building materials, biodegradable plastics and renewable biofuels. Yet, little is known about hemp metal-biochemistry. Using ICP-MS technology we determined hemp can be grown under Zn-rich conditions, providing the opportunity to repurpose land with moderate heavy metal contamination.
