Hemp License Applications and Registration 2020 Season

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) has announced that hemp license applications and registrations for the 2020 Wisconsin growing season are now available. The deadline for current licensees to renew their registration is March 1, 2020. New licensees can apply at any time during the year.

Wisconsin’s research pilot program requires that anyone who wants to grow or process hemp obtain a license from DATCP.  Those licensed in 2018 or 2019 will not need a new license but do need to register if they plan to grow or process in 2020. Those without a license will need both to apply for a license and register if they intend to grow or process in 2020. Licensing and registration can be done online or via downloadable forms at http://datcp.wi.gov.
