Agricultural Law

Agricultural Law image
Agriculture Law considers the role of government in agriculture as well as traditional transaction issues such as contracts, bailments, leasing, the marketing and storing of commodities, special secured financing rules relating to agriculture credit, and issues confronting landowners and the farming and livestock industries. There are many federal and state regulations governing these activities and their impact on farmers, farm workers, consumers, and the environment. Technology has also found its way to agriculture, which also raises issues on intellectual property, trade, finance, credit, and general commercial transactions. Agriculture law legal issues include soil preparation, seed planting, crops, crop harvesting, gardening, horticulture, viticulture, apiculture (bee-raising), dairying, poultry, pest control and pesticides, and ranching in a commercial setting, as well as land use, use of natural resources, and environmental rules. What governs the agricultural industry?

Numerous federal statues subsidize, regulate or otherwise directly affect the agriculture industry. For example, the Federal Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection act provides protection for migrant and seasonal agricultural workers. Other laws provide financial assistance to farmers, and others provide assistance for the construction or improvement of farm housing and other agricultural needs. Some states have also statues relating to agricultural production and labor.
