This report covers a trip taken by Carolyn
Ditchfield, of Australian Hemp Resource and
Manufacture, to the Bast Fibrous Plants Today and
Tomorrow – Breeding, Molecular Biology and
Biotechnology Beyond 21st Century Symposium, St
Petersburg between 28-30 September 1998. The
intention of the trip was to present a paper with
preliminary results of the world’s first tropical/subtropical
hemp breeding program, and to gain
further insight into new developments occurring in
the bast fibre industry in general.
