Arizona Department of Agriculture

The Arizona Department of Agriculture regulates and supports Arizona agriculture in a manner that encourages farming, ranching, and agribusiness while protecting consumers and natural resources. Although the Department’s General Fund support has dropped below the levels of when the agency was first created in 1991 it still maintains a strong regulatory program helping to ensure open acceptance of Arizona’s commodities and its quality animal products.

We have worked with the agriculture industry to continue to provide the services needed. Food safety has expanded to be even a stronger component of what the agency does. We continue to ensure protection from unwanted pests, environmental and consumer protection, and that animal health is protected. We have a laboratory to help with all the necessary regulatory programs. Somewhat unique, is that although primarily regulatory in nature, we maintain a consultation program whose purpose is to help the industry stay in compliance with the myriad of laws and rules they are required to deal with on a daily basis. This program also provides funding opportunities for various agriculture related improvements.
