Oregon State University plans to be the go-to school for knowledge about hemp.  Marijuana's non-stoner sibling has many uses, and the blessing of Congress on the crop opened the door wide for OSU. 

The Global Hemp Innovation Center aims to be the place with the most comprehensive knowledge of hemp care and feeding to be found anywhere. 

Jay Noller, professor of crop and soil science at OSU, is the director and lead researcher for the hemp center.  He visits to lay out the vision.  

Here's the map Jay Noller mentioned in his interview, showing hemp farms across Oregon:
