The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) California State Organic Program (SOP) contracts with 54 county agricultural commissioner offices to conduct enforcement activities on behalf of CDFA. The enforcement activities include conducting inspections and collecting organic samples for pesticide testing. Pictured are recent SOP organic sampling trainings of county staff at (clockwise from top right) a basil farm in San Mateo County, an apple ranch in Tuolumne County and a strawberry farm in Santa Clara County.
