KHH BioSci, Inc., and NC State University are collaborating on this project to grow giant knotweed to be used in the production of the bioprotectant Milsana. Funding from the Golden LEAF Foundation would be used as incentives to farmers to grow and market the plant. Ultimately, the project anticipates needing to have at least 2,000 acres of giant knotweed in cultivation. Eastern North Carolina is especially suited to growing knotweed.
