Oklahoma Department of Agriculture Now Accepting Farmer Applications for New Hemp Pilot Program

Thu, 24 May 2018 11:23:01 CDT

Oklahoma Department of Agriculture Now Accepting Farmer Applications for New Hemp Pilot Program Applications to participate in the Oklahoma Industrial Hemp Pilot Program are now available.


Oklahoma universities and colleges with a plant science curriculum are eligible to apply for an annual license from the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry (ODAFF) to grow Industrial Hemp for research. While independent producers may not directly apply for a license, they may contract with a university or college to obtain a license and participate in the pilot program.


Institutions wishing to participate in the pilot program should submit an application to ODAFF no less than 30 days prior to planting or cultivating an industrial hemp crop. Those hoping to plant a crop in 2018, are encouraged to get their applications in within the next two weeks in order to meet the 30-day requirement prior the end of planting season.


An application fee as well as an inspection fee is due at the time the license application is submitted. A separate license is required for each cultivation site.


The producer will be responsible for obtaining hemp seed containing less than 0.3% delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration. ODAFF will approve seeds certified by another state, province or country as containing less than 0.3% THC. ODAFF will verify the certification once the plant has emerged and can be tested.


The Oklahoma Hemp Pilot Program License is available on the home page of www.oda.state.ok.us. If you have additional questions, please send them to hemp@ag.ok.gov.
