Hemp Field

The Alabama Cooperative Extension Service worked with the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries (ADAI) to release an approved pesticide list for use on hemp in Alabama. Several more products have been recently approved for legal application to hemp. It is the sole responsibility of the grower to verify processor requirements for chemical applications on hemp.

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.

Proper identification of insects, weeds, and diseases should always take place before a pesticide application. See the Alabama Extension publication Hemp Pest Management in Alabama for the list of pesticides previously approved for use.
