Per the Industrial Hemp Bill, IC 15-15-13, hemp is subject to regulation by the state seed commissioner. All growers and handlers must obtain a license. Those engaged in the production of agricultural hemp seed must also have an agricultural hemp seed production license.

Grower: This includes Agricultural Hemp Seed Production grower activity, clone production, whether in a field or a greenhouse or other enclosed facility. (IC 15-15-13-4, IC 15-15-13-7(b), IC 15-15-13-9).

Handler: This includes processing, drying and transporting for others, etc. (IC 15-15-13-5, IC 15-15-13-7(b), IC 15-15-13-9.
