Horticultural Inspectors

History

Federal, state, and local laws have been enacted to protect citizens in many areas of daily life, including horticultural production, storage, and transportation. Over the years, federal, state, and local governments have developed a system of regular inspection and reporting to assure these safety standards are maintained.

Rather than wait until a law has been violated, it is more efficient to employ horticultural inspectors to continuously monitor the way in which standards requirements are carried out. Horticultural inspectors enforce compliance with health and safety laws and regulations that are related to agriculture and horticulture.
