HELENA, Mont. (NMB) – Due to recent spring weather that has delayed planting for may producers across the state, the Montana Department of Agriculture has extended the 2019 hemp license application deadline to Friday, June 14th.
A press release says that an industrial hemp license issued by the state provides authorization for the production of hemp at a particular growing area by a particular individual or entity. Licenses expire on the last day of April following the year the license is issued.
Applicants are subject to a $450 license fee, a $400 planting fee and may be subject to additional fees depending on which seed varieties they choose to grow.
