The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) announces three vacancies on the Fertilizer Inspection Advisory Board. The board advises the secretary on CDFA’s Fertilizing Materials Inspection Program (FMIP), which ensures fertilizing materials are safe, effective and meet quality guarantees.
As part of the program, FMIP inspectors and investigators located throughout the state conduct routine sampling and inspections; respond to consumer complaints; and enforce laws and regulations that govern the manufacturing and distribution of fertilizing materials. FMIP is funded by fertilizing materials license and product registration fees and mill assessments.
There are three board positions available. View a CDFA press release for more details and directions on how to apply by August 31, 2021.
