Advancing Industrial Hemp 2021

In 2020 and 2021, Acres U.S.A. held Advancing Industrial Hemp events which brought together industry-leading experts and growers who delved into seed selection, soil analysis, crop nutrition, and farming systems.

This event was designed for experienced and new hemp growers who want to learn what it takes to increase CBD percentages, boost yields and develop a more profitable, high-quality crop. In addition to providing in-depth insights into the farming practices used by successful hemp growers, the event offered informative sessions on economic trends as well as the ins and outs of supply chains.
