The University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) entered a partnership to develop a hemp testing program with Roseville Farms, a wholesale grower. The program is designed to test new hemp cultivars, which must be approved before they are produced or sold in the state. Growers approved to participate in the program submit cuttings of their cultivar and pay a one-time fee that covers the THC testing portion of the approval process. The cuttings will then be grown for 12 weeks at Roseville Farms under a controlled environment and then tested to ensure they contain less than 0.3% THC and to check other parameters. Growers can submit applications for the program to the Clonally Propagated Hemp Cultivar Approval Program website.
