Abstract
In a research report for the California Institute for the Study of Specialty Crops, Hurley provided a broad overview of the web of regulatory bodies affecting California agricultural producers. He found that California specialty crop producers must comply with multiple regulations from multiple local, state, and federal agencies. Locally, producers must comply with county land use regulations developed by the county, as well as, regulations established by the County Agricultural Commissioner. At the state level, producers must follow the regulations established by California Environmental Protection Agency (CALEPA), the Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR), and the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA). The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the United States Department of Labor are the major federal regulators specialty crop producers must deal with at the national level.
