Market Access Certification and Inspection

The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) is now accepting applications for registration to grow and handle industrial hemp for the 2017 growing season. ODA has filed an Industrial Hemp Temporary Rule following changes to Oregon’s industrial hemp law made by the 2016 legislature.These temporary rules implement the sections regarding testing when used for consumption. In addition to registrations for growing and handling industrial hemp, a registration is needed for those wishing to produce or handle agricultural hemp seed. 

As of January 18, 2017, the cost of registration has increased to $1,300 for the grower, $1,300 for the handler, and $120 for agricultural hemp seed production registration. Collected fees are used to administer ODA’s Industrial Hemp Program. More information on Industrial hemp registration fee changes.
