This hybrid was selected due to its high biomass and good artemisinin content. This variety is generally suited to most growing environments and is a robust crop which establishes quickly in the field.

Hyb8001r was trialled at 13 independent sites in China, India, Madagascar and Uganda; data for artemisinin concentration, dry leaf weight and yield was obtained from each site. The maximum concentration observed was 1.44% (Madagascar), maximum leaf dry weight 4488 kg/ha (China) and maximum yield obtained 54.5 kg/ha (Madagascar).
