2020 Brings New HEMP Policies

Since its introduction of the 2018 Farm Bill, federal and state policies regarding industrial hemp have increased in clarity and with it, our policies have formalized as well. Since North Unit Irrigation District is a U.S. Bureau of Reclamation project, our policies must align with state and federal guidelines.

In the June 2020 Board Meeting, the Board of Directors passed a resolution, updating the District’s policies regarding industrial hemp. This policy update can be found on our Operational Guidelines webpage through the Growing and Cultivating Industrial Hemp link.
