New Holland Agriculture, a global agriculture brand of CNH Industrial, recently planted 15 acres of industrial hemp for education and testing at its site in New Holland, Pennsylvania. Jon Hundley, Marketing Manager, New Holland explained the importance of this project thus, “The testing field will allow us to learn more about the entire crop cycle from planting to harvesting while capturing important crop and soil data. This is a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of the emerging industrial hemp industry and allows us to bring experts and customers together to discuss best practices, equipment solutions and market developments.”

Earlier this year, New Holland partnered with the National Hemp Association, the nation’s leading non-partisan hemp advocacy group based in Washington D.C., to accelerate the return of hemp commodity crop onto farmlands across North America, under the banner “Pushing Progress Together”.
