The Agricultural Commissioner, in cooperation with CDFA and USDA, works to enforce federal, foreign and domestic plant pest quarantines, as well as California state quarantines and county restrictions and ordinances. Pest exclusion is the cornerstone of pest prevention. In many instances, exclusion is the first, last and only means to keep exotic pests from invading California and Monterey County.

Quarantine programs serve to facilitate safe trade, monitor the movement of risk material, protect against the introduction of pests, regulate the import and export of plants, and help exporters meet the entry requirements of other countries. In this mandated program, the Agricultural Commissioner and his staff monitor and inspect agricultural commodities for planting or for consumption through County Quarantine Inspections, Quarantine Response, and Phytosanitary Certification.
