Hemp Grower​ Reports​​

Planting Report

How to Submit Your Report

​You can submit your planting report using either of the following methods:

Emailed planting reports are no longer accepted.​

Planting Report Requirements

Licensed growers with a current annual registration must submit a planting report by July 1 (even if you have not planted hemp yet) and within 30 days after planting each lot*. A planting report must include every lot* under that license, and a record of any hemp plants received from another licensee or anyone else.​​

*Lot: A contiguous area in a field, greenhouse, facility, or growing structure containing the same variety or strain of hemp throughout the area.​

When planting, keep in mind that y​our lot of hemp must contain 15 or more female plants in order for the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) to take samples for testing. The regulatory sample is a collection of the top two inches of flower from at least 15 female plants per lot. The exact number of cuttings per lot varies based on the size and the uniformity of a lot.

Additional​ requirements:

  • If you have not planted hemp, submit a planting report that indicates you have not planted yet.
  • If you plant after July 1, submit a planting report within 30 days of planting. The planting report is due within 30 days of planting at each lot, and must be completed for each lot of hemp planted at each growing location.
  • If you have hemp planted at more than one growing location, submit a separate planting report form for each growing location.
  • Use an additional planting report form if you have more than five varieties (lots) at one growing location.
  • In addition to planting information, also record recent hemp transfers and your current hemp plant inventory. Each growing location can contain one or more lots, fields, or greenhouses.

​You must include the following for the planting report:

  • A map of each growing location and each lot of hemp planted at that growing location. The map must show each lot, designating entrances, lot boundaries, and other lot-specific information.
  • Copies of records related to the purchase or acquisition of hemp seed, clone transplants, or seedling transplants for each lot of hemp that report on this form. These records can include copies of the seed labels, receipts for the planting material or seeds, the fit for commerce certificates, or certificates of analysis for each lot of hemp that you plant.​

Transfers, Inventory, and Maps  

Transfers, Inventory, and Maps Supplemental Form (579) 

This form is a required supplement to the electronic planting report.

  • One form covers one growing location and up to 11 varieties (lots) of hemp at that location.

  • Use an additional form if you have more than one growing location.
