Agricultural Commissioner's Office

Promoting a thriving agricultural community, healthy residents, and a balanced environment. We serve you by protecting public health, the environment, and local agriculture.

Here is a sample of what we do: 

  • Ensure the safe use of pesticides and investigate illnesses
  • Inspect eggs for defects to prevent food-borne illnesses
  • Prevent the establishment of pests that would damage crops, gardens, rangeland, and forests
  • Manage established invasive species to limit their spread
  • Promote the use of cultural controls for pest management
  • Regulate certified producers and certified farmers’ markets to allow local marketing of fresh commodities
