GRASS VALLEY, Calif., Jan. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Triminator, a leading international provider of cannabis and CBD hemp harvesting equipment, has announced the debut of the Triminator Kirpy CBD Hemp Harvester. The hemp harvester is a whole plant harvester released in the U.S. by Triminator in collaboration with KIRPY, a French specialty equipment manufacturer. The machine is designed for infield cutting and loading of whole hemp plants, which takes place prior to CBD extraction.
The Triminator Kirpy hemp harvester is a tractor mounted attachment capable of harvesting up to 5 acres a day. The harvester cuts the plant at the base, notches the stem, and transports the entire plant to a transport trailer, which moves to the processing facility. CBD hemp flowers are then extracted for use in topicals, edibles, and medicines, which utilize CBD for a rapidly expanding number of products.
With the CBD market expected to grow to $22 billion by 2022 according to the Bright Field Group, a CBD research firm, hemp farmers are scaling rapidly and searching for equipment to help meet demand. In fact, according to a recent survey by Hemp Industry Daily, one of the most important impacts of the passage of the 2018 farm bill is the ability of hemp farmers to have increased access to new harvesting equipment.
"There is so much interest in CBD hemp right now, we wanted to offer farmers a way to lower their production costs through automation. Historically, if you wanted to harvest CBD hemp flowers, you had to harvest by hand. With the growth in the industry, we saw the need for new thinking and new technology. Our hemp harvester eliminates the need for manual labor while maintaining the purity and integrity of the CBD flowers," said Dana Mosman, CEO of Triminator.
The new Triminator KIRPY hemp harvester is available directly through Triminator by calling 530-265-4277 and through limited authorized Triminator dealers. Visit the company's website at theTriminator.com for more information.
