The Agricultural Product Quality and Marketing team runs produce quality inspection programs to ensure that produce meets state standards for size, packaging, quality and maturity.  Nursery and seed inspections, as well as licensing requirements, verify that nurseries are in compliance with local, regional, and federal regulations.  The Agricultural Commissioner oversees local direct marketing programs and promotes the sale of local commodities through Certified Farmers’ Markets.  In conjunction with CDFA’s Organic Program, the Agricultural Commissioner regulates California state organic registration.  The Monterey County Agricultural Commissioner offers the Monterey County Certified Organic program as an option for qualified farmers to obtain organic certification.  The Product Quality and Marketing team also compiles county agricultural statistics into annual Crop Reports.
