County Ag Commissioners Updates

The goal of Spray Safe is to take a proactive stance to ensure public safety, particularly when it comes to protecting farm workers and field crews. As local enforcement, County Ag Commissioners have always been part of this proactive discussion. 

Through clear communication established in outreach efforts like Spray Safe, County Ag Commissioners are able to help support – alongside growers, applicators, and PCAs – the continued protection of our communities during production season.  Thank you to each county who submitted an update, the catalog has listed some general topics with each County Update.
