Grow hemp in Pennsylvania in 2021 by following all proper licensing, reporting, and sampling protocol. Though growing hemp in Pennsylvania using Feminized Hemp Seeds can be a great investment for new and existing farmers, everyone that wants to participate must follow a strict set of guidelines to do so legally in each US state. Bomar Agra Estates with our five years of experience in the hemp planting seasons will explain the precise requirements necessary to grow hemp in Pennsylvania and buy Pennsylvania hemp seeds.

The 2021 season will be the fifth year that hemp will be grown in Pennsylvania Industrial Hemp Program. Since the program’s modest start in 2017, with the issuance of 14 hemp research permits issued and 36 acres grown under the authority of Pennsylvania’s Industrial Hemp Research Act of Jul. 20, 2016, P.L. 822, No. 92 and legitimized by the 2014 Farm Bill, hemp has seen a major increase in the commonwealth.
In 2019, the cap on both number of hemp permits and amount of acreage per permit were removed, and the Department issued 324 growing permits for farms which planted just over 4,000 acres of hemp.
In 2020, the Department is committed to continuing to foster the conditions for Pennsylvanians to grow a profitable, sustainable, and in-demand hemp product.
The 2021 Pennsylvania Hemp Application for New and Renewing Permits is now available for mail-in submission to the Department. Online Submission of applications for new and renewing permits through PA Plants is expected in January 2021. See the Application Instructions (PDF) for additional details.
Notable Changes for the 2021 Hemp Program include:
- Modification of minimum planting requirements:
- Outdoor growers must plant a minimum of 150 plants. (Previously required to plant ¼ acres and 300 plants.)
- Indoor growers must plant a minimum of 1,000 square feet and 100 plants. (Previously required to plant 2,000 square feet and 200 plants.)
- The Department will issue research permits for institutions of higher education and research institutions. (For smaller scale research not resulting in commercial activity; details coming in January 2021.)
- Removed the requirement for signage at grow sites, although the Department still recommends signage as a best management practice.
- If the laboratory results for an officially sampled hemp lot are below the 0.3% Total THC compliance level, permittees can move the hemp crop upon receipt of the compliant Certificate of Analysis without need of a separate letter of clearance from PDA.
