Status of State and Tribal Hemp Production Plans for USDA Approval

This table summarizes the submission and approval status of State and Tribal hemp production plans. Once a plan is formally submitted, USDA has 60 days to approve or disapprove the plan. If a plan was submitted to USDA for review prior to the effective date of the Interim Final Rule (October 31, 2019), the 60-day requirement is not applicable. Once a plan is approved by USDA, it remains in effect unless suspended or revoked by USDA pursuant to the procedures described in the Interim Final Rule, or unless the State or Tribe revises their plan.
