The Hemp program’s ultimate goal is to create a vibrant hemp industry in Minnesota. To that end it educates farmers and creating informative resources in following areas:
1) Agronomics: including crop and variety data, herbicides, pesticides, pests and diseases, fertility requirements, planting and harvesting.
2) Machinery: including harvesting, processing, and custom work.
3) Pilot hemp program: Laws, rules, regulations, application process
Sensible Minnesota’s Hemp Program will coordinate with the Government Affairs Program to identify issues with implementation of administrative rules to streamline the process for interested farmers.
The organization is currently evaluating possible volunteers for implementation of the program, as well as monitoring relevant legislation and administrative proceedings.
What We’ve Done
With little progress on hemp policy in Minnesota since 2016, Sensible Minnesota has stuck to monitoring legislation and administrative rule, sharing media stories, and providing interviews to news outlets. We are also in regular contact with Minnesota’s hemp farmers to identify issues and work on ideas for resolution.
