    Industrial hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) was grown as a fiber crop in Missouri until mid-1900s. The controlled substance Act, 1970 made it illegal to produce any form of the cannabis plant.
    The recent changes in federal and state legislation have increased interest in growing hemp for fiber, grain and CBD oil.
    The Missouri department of agriculture (MDA) is working to establish regulations and procedures in advance of the 2020 industrial hemp-growing season. As part of the rules making process, the Department is asking for public comment on the proposed industrial hemp rules until Dec. 1, 2019.
    The department will publish applications for producer registrations and agricultural hemp propagule and seed permits on MDA webpage on Dec. 2, 2019. Industrial hemp may not be grown in Missouri and individuals may not possess seeds or propagules without an applicable producer registration and/or agriculture hemp propagule and seed permit.
    MU Extension in Audrain County offers a free workshop on industrial hemp production. The event is 1:00 – 4:30 p.m., Dec. 13, 2019, at the community room on basement of Audrain county courthouse in Mexico, MO, says Dhruba Dhakal, MU Extension field specialist in agronomy.
