All growers of industrial hemp for commercial purposes must register with the County Agricultural Commissioner prior to cultivation. Registration is not yet available.   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 CDFA, which will consider recommendations from the Industrial Hemp Advisory Board.  When CDFA provides registration materials to the County Agricultural Commissioner, we will update this website with registration procedures.
