Industrial Hemp Recordkeeping

​​​Growers

Reports

Licensed growers are required to submit these reports to the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection:

  • Planting report by July 1 or within 30 days after planting, whichever is earlier
  • Final production report by December 15 of the crop year
  • Any other reports requested

DATCP will provide forms for the above reports. The grower planting report and final report forms are available in the forms list, right. We will post other report forms on this site later.

You will indicate your research interests on a checklist included in your registration form. 

Submitting Planting Reports  

Submit your report right after you plant, propagate, or transferred hemp.  All licensed hemp growers with a 2019 annual registration MUST submit at least one planting report by July 1, 2019.

Greenhouse Planting:  You are required to submit a planting report any time that you plant hemp seeds, start hemp seeds, plant hemp clones, plant hemp transplants, or propagate any other type of hemp plants in a greenhouse or in an indoor growing environment.  Growing in a residence is prohibited. 

  • Complete a greenhouse planting report if you have received any type of hemp plants from another licensee and are putting the hemp plants in a greenhouse or an indoor growing environment.  
  • Complete a greenhouse planting report if you are moving your own hemp from one of your locations into your greenhouse location.  
  • If you have sold, transferred, received, or purchased any type of hemp, record that on the greenhouse planting report.  

Field Planting:  You are required to submit a planting report any time that you plant hemp seeds, hemp clones, hemp transplants, or any other type of hemp plants in a field.  Also complete a field planting report if you have received any type of hemp plants from another licensee and are putting or planting the hemp plants in a field. 

Not Planting at all in 2019:  If you are 100% sure that you will not plant hemp anytime in 2019, you still need to complete a planting report that tells us this information before July 1, 2019.  Fill out the license holder information and section 1. Check the box next to the sentence that reads:

If you have not and will not plant/propagate or maintain live hemp plants, check this box." Remember to sign and date your form before you submit it.  

Have not planted by July 1, but intend to plant later:  If you think you will plant hemp between July 1 and December 31, 2019, but you have not sent in a planting report yet, you must submit a planting report by July 1, 2019.  Fill out the license holder information section; the greenhouse or field number/name (in section 2) and write in that row, “WILL PLANT LATER IN 2019”.  Remember to sign and date your form before you submit it.  When planting after July 1, you must submit your planting reports immediately after you plant.

The planting report form, both online and for printing, are available in the box at right.
