crailarPORTLAND - Naturally Advanced Technologies has embarked on a research project with Hanesbrands Inc. and the US Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) to cultivate and evaluate the viability of various flax strains for use in Crailar technology.

The project, led by ARS, the chief in-house scientific research agency of USDA, is part of the agency's Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) program - the primary tool linking government and industry researchers in cooperative research work. ARS scientists will collaborate with NAT and Hanesbrands Inc. to assess various flax varieties and their viability for cultivation in the South Carolina region, as well as which crop conditions, harvesting and processing techniques will produce the highest possible yield of consistently superior fibres.
