The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection’s hemp pilot research program requires both hemp growers and processors to obtain one-time licenses, and register each year they intend to plant/process hemp. Growers and processors must also pass criminal background checks and pay fees to participate in the program.
The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) is currently accepting hemp applications for the 2021 growing season, which is from January 1, 2021 – December 31, 2021. Based on the 2018 Farm Bill as modified on December 21, 2020, by Section 782 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 and Other Extensions Act, the 2020 growing season ends on December 31, 2020, and the 2021 growing season ends on December 31, 2021.
