Hemp Transition Webinar Tomorrow

A reminder that the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will hold a joint webinar for hemp growers to learn how to locate and work with their local USDA office and how to apply for a USDA hemp license. This is in preparation for transitioning the hemp program to USDA on January 1, 2022.

When: Wednesday, September 15 from 1-3 p.m. View the agenda.

Growers can register for the webinar in advance with USDA. The webinar will be recorded and posted on the DATCP Hemp Program webpage when available.

If you plan to grow hemp in 2022, you should begin the licensing process now. This transition checklist is available for hemp growers to help guide you through the process of becoming a licensed hemp grower with USDA in 2022.
