Hemp Industry Daily report

Greg Ibach, undersecretary for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, told members at the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA) meeting in Arlington, Virginia, that the USDA and DEA have reached an agreement to remove the requirement for hemp farmers to have their crops tested in DEA-registered laboratories in 2020.


“DEA will still expect states to work with their laboratories to try to achieve certification for the 2021 crop year,” he added.
“We were able to reach an agreement (with DEA) that we are going to be able to provide some relief from the laboratory certification process for this crop year,” Ibach said.
