Important Deadlines Nearing for Tennessee Hemp Producers

<![CDATA[The Tennessee Department of Agriculture (TDA) and Farm Service Agency (FSA) is working together to remind Tennessee hemp producers of important deadlines for the 2022 growing season. In a recent press release, TDA’s Hemp Coordinator Denise Woods said, “It’s imperative that current producers complete their applications now to ensure no lapse in licensure. Producers can easily complete their application online, and we also have a Hemp Grower Application Checklist at the bottom of the application to help them make sure they have all requirements submitted.”All hemp producers must be licensed by the TDA and are required to set up a Farm Record with the FSA and report their hemp crop acreage yearly by the July 31 annual deadline, according to the release.In addition, already licensed producers must reapply through the TDA by 4:30 p.m. CDT June 30; however, new producer applications will be accepted all year and expire June 30 annually. If the producer does not submit their application, license fees and required documentation by 4:30 p.m. CDT June 30, the producer’s license will expire, the release states. “We want to see this evolving agricultural sector progress in Tennessee,” Agriculture Commissioner Charlie Hatcher said. “We both play a part in the successful implementation of the state’s hemp program by working together to support growers and providing resources for them.”]]>
