Hi all, I've noticed that some changes have been recently made, and I am curious if anyone has any other information to share and to hopefully pass the information.
Last week I saw on Facebook that the following changes were made by the TDA:
Does my hemp crop need to be inspected and tested?
TDA conducts random sampling and is authorized to inspect or test any hemp crop at any time.
TDA will contact growers who will be inspected.
You may not be contacted for inspection and testing if:
- you are growing for personal use
- or you are growing for fiber
- or you are growing less than 2 acres of hemp
- or your buyer is testing for THC through a private lab
If you are in one of the categories listed above and do want your crop inspected and tested, please contact us at 615-837-5137. The turnaround time for test results may vary, depending on demand. Please be aware that when you voluntarily choose to have your crop tested, the crop cannot be moved until the test results are finalized.Now, I've looked on the application as well as the updated rules and it the "30 days notice to the TDA prior to harvest, for inspection" part is gone. Does anyone know if it is still required to call the TDA 30 days before hand?
