Hemp Producer, Propagator, Broker Application
A license must be obtained in order to grow hemp in Tennessee.
ALL LICENSES APPLIED FOR NOW WILL EXPIRE 6/30/2024
The Tennessee Department of Agriculture is making it easier for customers to interact with the Division of Consumer and Industry Services.
Invoices, licenses, and permits have a new look in 2023. Streamlining the documents makes them simpler to interpret and understand.
A new, secure online portal is easing access to invoice, license, and permit information. Business owners can see the status of a license or registration, when payment is due, and the balance owed. Additionally, payments can be made online with a credit card or eCheck, eliminating the need to send payments through the mail.
The following programs transitioned to the new Trace First portal May 1:
· Ag Inputs (Feed, Seed, Fertilizer, Lime)
· Plant Certification
· Weights and Measures
As always, we appreciate your partnership in serving the citizens of Tennessee. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Consumer and Industry Services Division at (615) 837-5150.
