Our university which is frequently mentioned in local and national media about its studies on Industrial Hemp has been mentioned on live news on TRT HABER Günaydın Haftasonu programme.
On the live broadcast from the hemp cultivation area, information on hemp was given and hemp harvest was shared with the viewers. Institute of Hemp Research Coordinator and Our Vice Rector Prof. Dr. Güngör Yılmaz stated that as university they started R&D studies after Yozgat Bozok University received specialization document by CoHE in January 2020, to bring hemp to the economy, and to diversify and develop hemp based industry in Yozgat and its region. Our Vice Rector Prof. Dr. Yılmaz continued his words as follows:
“While carrying out R&D studies, producing raw material was important. In this sense, we started trial studies to obtain data for agricultural research first, and then, for our researchers to carry out their studies in industrial sectors such as construction, fiber, composite materials or biomaterials, and also to supply raw materials to our study groups working on hemp chemistry to conduct research for medical purposes. We also started creating production areas. As of today, we will supply study materials that our research groups demand. On the other hand, our research groups started global projects regarding what our country needs. In the forthcoming days we will present these projects to Presidency Directorate of Strategy and Budget.”2.10.2020 11:08
