Applications to grow and process hemp in 2019 are now being accepted by the Industrial Hemp Pilot Program at the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. The application forms, fees, and full instructions on how to apply can be found at the MDA’s website.
There are two different applications and licenses for the 2019 season–one for growers and one for processors. Please check the fee schedule on the website; it has changed for 2019. The application process is not competitive and does not close.
