Certified Hemp Sampling Agents are needed in the USA in order to provide farmers the required manpower to to achieve testing protocols issued in the Hemp Production Guidelines. In order to become certified, USDA published a training guide for all Hemp Sampling Agents to learn the necessary skills in order to be considered certified for the national roster.
In an effort to go above and beyond for farmers, Farm to Market Hemp has taken this educational material and created a certification program so that participation, education and completion of the material can be documented for discriminating individuals have a background checked roster of samplers who are equipped with a support network and the resources needed to stay up to speed on the numerous state laws and national program requirements.
As a result of this effort, Farm to Market Hemp is excited to launch our Certified Hemp Sampling Agent Program. All costs include access to course content, technical support for the course and guidance on navigating the order of the background verification* from a recognized third party provider and shared directly with Farm to Market Hemp as this is required of all agents certified through this program (*cost not included).
