Pesticide Use on Hemp

VDACS has issued information to assist industrial hemp growers in identifying pesticide products that may be used on hemp crops grown in Virginia.

Information regarding VDACS’s pesticide product registration process and currently registered pesticides is available here.

If your hemp product is intended for human consumption: VDACS has reviewed the Food and Drink Law and related regulations that it administers in light of the recent hemp-related amendments and recently determined that, as noted in the May 16 correspondence from the Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services, the agency's Food Safety Program is not able to approve the manufacture, distribution, or sale of a hemp-derived extract intended for human consumption that is produced by a Registered Industrial Hemp Processor. If your intended hemp-derived product is not an extract but is intended for human consumption, please contact VDACS's Food Safety Program for additional information.
