Industrial hemp takes another step forward in South Dakota

The South Dakota Department of Agriculture recently submitted its plan for regulating industrial hemp to USDA.

The South Dakota Department of Agriculture recently submitted its plan to regulate industrial hemp to USDA for final approval. 

“I am looking forward to working with industrial hemp producers and processors in South Dakota,” says Derek Schiefelbein, SDDA industrial hemp program manager. “The SDDA will continue to develop the program while waiting for approval from the USDA. Processors and growers can look for more information for how to apply in the near future.”

Industrial hemp legislation was passed by the South Dakota Legislature in 2020. It authorized SDDA to create a program that would regulate the cultivation and processing of industrial hemp.
