Author: Daniel T. McKillopDate: January 26, 2021
On January 15, 2020, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) published its Final Rule on Establishment of a Domestic Hemp Production Program. According to the USDA, the Final Rule incorporates modifications to its Interim Final Rule based on public comments and lessons learned during the 2020 growing season. The Final Rule will take effect on March 22, 2021.
“With the publication of this final rule, USDA brings to a close a full and transparent rule-making process that started with a hemp listening session in March 2019,” USDA Marketing and Regulatory Programs Under Secretary Greg Ibach said in a press statement. “USDA staff have taken the information you have provided through three comment periods and from your experiences over a growing season to develop regulations that meet Congressional intent while providing a fair, consistent, science-based process for states, tribes and individual producers. USDA staff will continue to conduct education and outreach to help the industry achieve compliance with the requirements.”
