US: USDA approves hemp production plans for Iowa, Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved hemp production plans under the U.S. Domestic Hemp Production Program for the state of Iowa, the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs and the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

USDA continues to receive and review hemp production plans from states and Indian tribes. 

The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill) directed USDA to develop a regulatory oversight program for hemp and include provisions for USDA to approve hemp production plans submitted by states and Indian tribes. Accordingly, on October 31, 2019, USDA issued an interim final rule establishing the U.S. Domestic Hemp Production Program and the provisions for USDA to approve submitted plans. State and tribal plans provide details on practices and procedures that enable hemp producers in their jurisdictions to operate according to their individual plans and in compliance with federal laws.
