Perdue AgriBusiness and TCI Collaborate to Bring Profitable New Crop to North Carolina
Date:8/30/2011

l from the HEAR seed is used in the manufacture of polymers, petroleum additives, pharmaceuticals, foods and personal-care products. A derivative of the oil is used in the manufacturing process for almost all plastic bags. Its high non-food use means HEAR oil cannot be replaced by other plant or mineral oils, and demand is not subject to government energy policies.  

"We have a very strong demand for HEAR globally, and are seeking long-term crop production partners," says Andrew Hebard, president and CEO of TCI. "Yield results in North Carolina prove the state offers one of the best regions for growing HEAR.  Commercial crops grown by North Carolina farmers produced approximately 55 bushels per acre in 2011. We contract with growers around the world to supply specialty oils to our customers and we're pleased to be able to bring this opportunity to farmers right here in our home state."

Farmers reap big benefits by growing HEAR

HEAR offers a new, profitable fall growing option for farmers in North Carolina.  It is expected that HEAR will earn growers from $50 to $100 more per acre than wheat, and it improves wheat yields the following growing season by as much as 15%. The meal produced after the oil is extracted from the seed is a high-protein animal feed, and will be a valuable addition to North Carolina's current protein deficit in the livestock production industry.

"We are continually looking for new crop opportunities for North Carolina farmers that help them be more profitable," says Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler.  "As farmers begin considering their fall planting options, they need to look at their own individual operations to determine whether this would be a viable alternative crop for their farm."

"We are right in the heart of where you can grow HEAR very well," says Dr. Chris Reberg-Horton, assistant professor and organic cropping specialist in NCSU's Department of Crop Science. "It's a
