Hemp is a new crop for Alabama and for the United States. With the 2014 Farm Bill’s Pilot Program, many states beganproducing hemp for fiber, grain, or flower. Additionally, the 2018 Farm Bill listed hemp as an agricultural commodity, leading to even more states, including Alabama, signing on to grow hemp in 2019. There has been little to no research done on hemp in the last several decades so the available information is limited. We are constantly learning about the insects, weeds, and diseases that infest hemp and how to control them.

This guide is the most up-to-date information available to Alabama Extension, but recommendations are changing as more is learned.

These products have been reviewed by the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries (ADAI) and Alabama Extension and appear to meet all the criteria for legal use in Alabama.

ADAI and Alabama Extension make no recommendations for the use of pesticides on hemp. This list is not an endorsement of any kind for any of the products listed, nor does it ensure the safety or efficacy of these products when applied to hemp in Alabama.

IPM guides for other crops as well as a general IPM overview, safety recommendations and directions for submitting samples can be found in the Integrated Pest Management Guides.

Alabama Extension professionals will be providing guidance to Alabama hemp growers through the cultivation and harvesting season. Though Extension personnel cannot collect or transport samples, they will be able to offer research-based solutions to weed and insect control issues.

Transportation Guidelines

Per the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries, the following documents must accompany a shipment of harvested hemp to a processor:

  • A Release/Movement form supplied by ADAI (or from their state’s hemp program) after sampling and testing.
  • A copy of the hemp grower’s license.
  • A copy of the hemp license for the processor to whom the hemp is being taken.

No matter who transports hemp, the same documents are required:

  • A Release/Movement form, Certificate of Analysis (COA), or similar form from the home state showing that the hemp being transported contains no more than 0.3% Total Δ-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Total Δ-9-THC) by dry weight.
  • A copy of the hemp grower’s license.

Any shipment of hemp that is unaccompanied by proper documentation and a hemp license is subject to a law enforcement stop. Growers may be stopped by law enforcement at any time and asked to provide documentation showing what crop is being transported. Because there is no test that law enforcement can conduct that will differentiate between hemp and marijuana, the shipment may be confiscated and the driver may be arrested.
