Staying at the forefront of this developing industry

As the hemp industry has reemerged in the US with new demand for its products, and legislation has been created to permit legal growth of this crop, Rock River Laboratory recognized the need for accurate, consistent analysis of this commodity. Through our partnership with Pride Analytics and Consulting, a third-party cannabis laboratory, along with our contributions of time, resources, and staff into various hemp research programs across the midwest, we have invested significantly into forging this industry forward. These efforts include working partnerships with: 

  • Michael Fields Agricultural Institute research trials

  • Midwestern Hemp Database - in cooperation with University of Illinois Extension, Purdue University Extension, Michigan State University Extension, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Extension, and Pride Analytics and Consulting

We are excited to have some of the best scientific and agronomic minds in this industry also contributing toward this progress. All three of these key individuals have different pieces to bring to the puzzle:

  • Scott Fleming: Field insights and crop management

  • Eva Lynch: Laboratory methods and chemical analysis

  • Dustin Sawyer: Statistical analysis and product health and safety 

We’ve helped advance testing techniques, product safety, and management decisions in our work to try and give back to the industry. Whether you’re a grower or processor, we can help ensure the validity and safety of your products in various forms. Contact us to learn more:
