REGISTRATION FOR INDUSTRIAL HEMP CULTIVATION IS NOT YET AVAILABLE. All growers of industrial hemp for commercial purposes must register with the County Agricultural Commissioner prior to cultivation. Since registration is not currently available, no industrial hemp may be cultivated in the County. Any cultivation of industrial hemp without a valid registration is in violation of the law and subject to enforcement. The fees and process for registration will be developed by the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), which will consider recommendations from the Industrial Hemp Advisory Board. When CDFA provides registration materials to the County Agricultural Commissioner, the Agricultural Commissioner's website will be updated with registration procedures.
