CCA Seminar Jan 18, 2020 – “How to Farm Hemp in 2020 Without Losing Your Shirt”

how to farm hemp in 2020 seminar

The first CCA event in 2020 is a 5 hour Saturday seminar packed with crucial knowledge taken from the many problems Farmers in Pennsylvania and neighboring states encountered during the first legal season of hemp agriculture under Federal Farm Bill 2018,  the just-finished summer and fall of 2019.

The seminar starts at noon and ends at 5 pm. Open House at N2Innovations is 1 1/2 hours before and after the seminar.

Hemp is an amazing plant.  Farm it properly and it grows like a weed, fast and tough, putting on height and weight faster than any other plant farmed by man.  But it has unique needs and problems. And particularly for the most profitable hemp crop,  which are the special varieties of hemp grown in a demanding technique to produce a high-value CBD medicinal extract, a lot can go wrong, and a lot DID go wrong in 2019.

CBD Hemp seed is expensive. Very expensive. And the CBD technique involves careful timing, human labor, specialized knowledge and experience, wise field choice, and smart farmers.

The rewards for success can be significant. Buyers made advance contracts for $50,000 an acre in 2019 to purchase CBD crops in 2019 from farmers with experience and a past record of success. You can’t expect this as a beginning hemp farmer, but, in order to become experienced, you have to begin.

It’s important to know that in 2019 a lot of farmers failed, and sometimes failed spectacularly.  Valuable hemp rotted in the field because farmers didn’t understand how to harvest it, dry it, and get it to buyers. There were significant problems getting good seed at the right time. Farmers who wanted to plant 100 acres and make windfall profits could only get seed for a few acres. Worse,  many farmers were ripped off by shady seed suppliers taking advantage of the pressure to get planted. The bad seedstock looked okay. But planting it brought a world of problems, more costs for the farmer, and in the end a worthless crop, or worse a crop that tested “hot”, that is, which contained too much THC, and which had to be destroyed as a result, after all that work.

You can avoid all of those problems by applying the key insights and information we will be teaching in this five hour seminar.

The seminar starts at noon and ends at 5 pm. Open House at N2Innovations is 1 1/2 hours before and after the seminar.

The seminar presenters will be Larry Nagle, Founder and President of the Cannabis College of American. Larry was the master grower for the N2Innovations hemp project involving five hemp fields on family farms in the Nittany Valley.

Protect yourself against likely and avoidable problems. Educate yourself about the paths to success and profits. Sign up for this seminar to reserve your space. As we have been talking with people over the phone and in the fields, demand for this seminar has been fierce.  We can’t be certain, but seats may sell out fast.

Information about lodging, local eateries, and tours of the N2Innovations facilities will be added soon.

Be aware that you WILL see many horse and buggy drivers on the roads in and around Belleville. Be careful driving, especially in the darkness, because you may not realize the lights you see ahead are on a buggy. The area around Belleville has both Amish and Mennonite communities. Many of the local Amish and Mennonite farmers have expressed a strong interest in farming hemp in 2020, so you can expect them to also be at this seminar.

Electronic credit card payments can be made here at N2Innovations.

Cannabis College of America spent the Summer and Fall Growing CBD Hemp in Pennsylvania!

Cannabis College of America Growing Hemp in Pennsylvania

Sometimes the Universe and the Good Lord offers you an opportunity so stunning that everything else in life must be set aside to follow that offered path. That was the case for The Cannabis College of America in 2019. We were asked to participate and in fact serve as the Master Grower for a Farm Bill 2018 legal hemp planting project near Penn State University. So we traveled north and spent the summer in the Ridge and Valley region and the famous Nittany Valley, growing CBD hemp in Pennsylvania.

What an adventure! Take a look at some of my photos and consider what we were able to accomplish with a great idea – contracts with local family farmers – and the knowledge and skills and practical experience that make the Cannabis College of America such an exceptional source of training and education in the cannabis hemp industry.

We had such a successful year growing CBD hemp in Pennsylvania that the CCA was asked to collaborate with N2Innovations in operating a branch of the Cannabis College of America in their Belleville Pa Hemp Drying Storage and Extraction facility. In a few days we will be posting more photos and descriptions of the seminar and class schedules for this spring. First seminar to be held January 18, 2020 at:
