January 09, 2024


The Wyoming Department of Agriculture (WDA) is proposing changes to its Chapter 61 rules pertaining to hemp.

The Wyoming Department of Agriculture (WDA) is proposing changes to its Chapter 61 rules pertaining to hemp. The proposed changes were made to keep the Wyoming Hemp Plan in compliance with the USDA Final Rule for the domestic production of hemp effective on March 22, 2021. The primary changes include allowing producers with “hot” hemp the ability to remediate the crop instead of requiring the crop to be destroyed, and adding a section for hemp research.


The public comment period for these rules will close on March 1st, 2024. A public hearing will be held if requested by 25 or more persons, by a governmental subdivision, or by an organization of 25 or more members. Written comments or request for a public hearing may be addressed to: Wyoming Department of Agriculture, Attn: Dale Heggem, 2219 Carey Avenue, Cheyenne, WY 82001, or submitted via the Wyoming Rules System site at https://rules.wyo.gov.
