New Holland, Hemp Association form exclusive pact to power new commodity crop

January 8, 2020 |

In Pennsylvania, New Holland Agriculture and the National Hemp Association have signed a deal to “accelerate the return of hemp commodity crop onto farmlands across North America”, under the banner “Pushing Progress Together”.

As part of this partnership, the National Hemp Association will participate alongside New Holland at 16 national farm shows throughout North America to build out this sustainable new industry and will provide educational sessions and panel discussions as well as exhibit the multitude of products that can be produced from the hemp crop.

The alliance will also seek to move forward on solving the industry’s biggest challenge: the absence of commercial scale harvesting and decortication equipment uniting the demand of the product to the farmers that supply it. In order to begin laying the foundation of an integrated North American hemp supply chain, the alliance calls on other partners – corporations and entities to join a “Hemp Pledge” and commit to purchasing hemp grown and processed in the U.S. by U.S. farmers.

“We see this exclusive partnership as a way to bring the nation’s leading hemp advocates and educators to events where they can respond to the issues of most concern to farmers, manufacturers, processors and the general public”, says Brett Davis, Vice President, New Holland, North America. “It too will provide New Holland with the opportunity to hear from our dealer network, our customers and the more than 115,000 farmers who are looking to New Holland to bring forward supply chain solutions”.
