WEST LAFAYETTE, IN - The USDA has approved Indiana's hemp plan for commercially growing and processing hemp.
Under this newly approved plan, farmers will not need a research component to be licensed. In Indiana, hemp processing and production are regulated through the Office of the Indiana State Chemist (OISC).
For the 2021 growing season, applications will open in November 2020. Applications will be available online.
Indiana is one of 29 states with approved hemp plans, 12 states are currently negotiating with USDA on their plans and nine states are continuing with the USDA hemp production rules.
