The Minnesota (USA) state Department of Agriculture (MDA) has opened its hemp licensing process for next year. Individual growers and companies must be licensed under the hemp program in Minnesota, which operates under state rules approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Rules require growers to report their hemp acreage to their local USDA Farm Service Agency office and notify the MDA of an anticipated harvest date. Hemp crops must be tested no more than 15 days before harvest to ensure the plants fall below 0.3% total THC, the federal limit. First-time applicants must submit fingerprints and pass a criminal background check. Online applications will be accepted until April 30, 2021.
