Hemp Pilot Program
According to information we have received from the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, Oklahoma's Industrial Hemp Pilot Program will end on December 31, 2019 and in 2020 growers will go directly through ODAFF. We are saddened to say that Western will not be involved in an official capacity. We are in the process of trying to determine what our part might be in the hemp industry. As many of you know, we are a very small college with limited resources so hopefully we can find a way to still be involved. ODAFF will be developing a new application for 2020. However, they are extremely busy right now with testing and harvesting so we do not expect anything to be released until closer to 2020.
If you have specific questions regarding Western's involvement with the 2019 Industrial Hemp Pilot Program please contact:
