Agriculture Industry Licensing

Overview

Each state strives to protect its natural resources in different ways. One method is regulation of the sale and distribution of agricultural goods. States issue specific business licenses and permits for an array of agricultural products, services and sales. However your business fits into the agricultural industry, LicenseLogix will research, prepare and file for every license you need and monitor all renewals.

Background

Different license categories and licensing procedures exist in each state when it comes to agriculture. Many states require licenses for entities that are producing or growing plant material for sale or distribution. Other commonly regulated areas include seed dealers, nurseries, feed dealer, grain commodity dealers, crop dealers, landscape services, etc. Applications, license fees, and renewals all vary based on the jurisdiction and type of business. Applicants may be subject to regular inspection by state officials. Additionally, states use these types of licenses to track agricultural businesses and to oversee safe practices that are beneficial to the environment and the local economy.

Ramifications of Non-Compliance

Businesses functioning without the proper agriculture license are generally penalized based on the size of the operation and the gravity of the offense. Warnings and fines are common for first offenses while more egregious transgressions can lead to the permanent revocation of a license.
