Alabama has postponed for two weeks the opening of the application period for its 2020 hemp system as it awaits federal interim regulations.

The registration period for growers, processors and universities will now run for 4 weeks, from Oct. 7 to Nov. 1, the Alabama Division of Agriculture and Industries stated.

The U.S. Division of Agriculture has stated its guidelines for developing hemp have been delayed due to the fact of complications setting nationwide THC testing guidelines, amongst other points.

Alabama’s hemp system was launched in 2019 soon after final year’s Farm Bill declassified hemp as a Schedule 1 drug and deemed the crop as a commodity.
