Certifying Hemp

With the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp is no longer a controlled substance and is now a legal agricultural crop in the USA. To apply for certification under the USDA National Organic Program, please refer to the required crops forms on this page. We recommend getting an early start on your crop application. The sooner you send in your application the earlier we can inspect and certify. This year’s deadline for new applicants is June 30, 2020. 

Please read over the following documents carefully. You must complete the hemp supplement and compliance affidavit and return them with the rest of your application materials. For currently certified producers, please return the Hemp Supplement and Compliance Affidavit forms with your annual OSP update:
