Message from the Agricultural Commissioner / Sealer

Thank you for visiting the Ventura County Agricultural Commissioner/Sealer of Weights and Measure’s website. Our Mission is to protect and promote agriculture and equity in the marketplace, while ensuring the welfare of the public, the industry and the environment. We do this by enforcing federal, state and local laws, regulations, and ordinances for:

  • Pest management and pesticide use
  • Preventing the introduction and movement of quarantined pests
  • Certification of shipments for export
  • Weight, measure and price accuracy of devices used in commercial transactions
  • Quality control for produce, nursery stock, and other agricultural products
  • Ensuring truth in advertising for organic products and farmers markets
  • Enforcement of labeling for food safety traceability
  • Reviewing land use compatibility with agricultural operations
  • Compiling and reporting crop production statistics and completing damage assessments
  • And many other activities

Under direction of the Ventura County Board of Supervisors our office works in cooperation with the California Departments of Food and Agriculture and Pesticide Regulation, agricultural advocacy groups, concerned citizens, and others to serve the agricultural industry and the public. We work to preserve a reasonable balance between commerce and regulatory requirements as we address the ever-changing climate of agriculture, the needs of the public, and responsible stewardship of the environment.
