Industrial Hemp Grower License and Registration
This is the online application for the 2018 Wisconsin Industrial Hemp Grower Pilot Program. To apply online, click the "Start New Application" button below. PLEASE NOTE: You MUST register for a MyDATCP online account at the end of the process to ensure that you can edit or view your information later. You will be presented with your invoice and payment options following registration.

This initial application will cover a new, one-time Industrial Hemp Grower License and the 2018 Annual Registration of your Industrial Hemp Grower License. In order to grow Industrial Hemp in Wisconsin, you need both the one-time Grower License and the Annual Registration for each year in which you plan to grow Industrial Hemp.

In 2018, the due date for your completed forms, fees, research agreement, and any other required information is May 1, 2018. No late applications will be accepted. Changes made to your license after May 1, 2018 will result in additional fees.

If you have detailed questions about the application or fees, please see the Instructions for the Wisconsin Industrial Hemp Pilot Program here.
