Fields of Green: Hemp Farm & Agriculture Symposium Debuts at 5th Annual NoCo Hemp Expo

States from Colorado to NorthDakota to Kentucky are taking the lead in allowing farmers to grow industrial hemp, the non-psychoactive cousin to marijuana that has thousands of uses from food, textiles, dietary supplements and beauty care products to oil, paper, plastics, building materials and more. Yet, sharing of information and research among crop producers and farmers has been lagging in this emerging field.

The inaugural NoCo Hemp Farm & Agriculture Symposium on Saturday, April 7, 2018, in Loveland, CO, will help remedy that. Commercial hemp farmers, growers, researchers and agriculture specialists will convene to learn about crop methodologies, regenerative farming best practices and market opportunities for the industrial hemp industry.


The full-day Farm & Ag Symposium will highlight early learnings, recommended production practices and market opportunities from pilot programs in Colorado, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and other states and regions where commercial hemp crops are permitted and/or licensed to be grown. The symposium also will feature new equipment for farmers and showcase agricultural exhibits.

The Farm & Agriculture Symposium is presented by Bija Hemp, a leading industrial hemp seed innovator based in Denver. Bija Hemp’s mission is to discover and procure the highest quality hemp seed from around the world and then match them to specific purposes, allowing Industrial Hemp to take root in the United States and Western Hemisphere.

This groundbreaking presentation is a new feature of the 5th Annual NoCo Hemp Expo, or NoCo5, the largest gathering of hemp thought leaders, speakers, producers, entrepreneurs, and exhibitors from around the globe. NoCo5 will take place on April 6-7, 2018, at the Ranch Events Complex in Loveland, CO, and is presented by PureHemp Technology.
