2019 hemp license application deadline extended to May 15


Staff and wire

The Montana Department of Agriculture announced it has extended the 2019 hemp license application deadline to Wednesday, May 15.

The department’s announcement follows the announcement of a hemp processing facility opening in Havre.

IndHemp LLC announced April 30, the day before the original deadline to apply for a hemp license, that it is opening a processing plant in Havre.

The owners had been working to open a plant in Glasgow with plans to eventually open a Havre plant, but switched to Havre first due to delays in the process in Glasgow. A company representative urged people to apply for licenses and register with the company.

Farmers interested in growing hemp for IndHemp this season can contact the companay via email at [email protected] and may also register to be a grower on the grower’s page of its website http://www.indhemp.com /.

An industrial hemp license issued by the state provides authorization for the production of industrial 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.

Completed applications can be sent to the Department of Agriculture at:

  Montana Department of Agriculture
