Rule Details

Rule Number: 14P020
Title: Regulations Relating to the Inspection of Nurseries
Type: Standard
Status: Adopted
Agency: Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets
Legal Authority: 6 V.S.A. ยง 4029
Summary: This amendment updates the rule to reflect certain statutory and administrative changes in the nursery licensing and inspection program that have occurred since 1988. Changes include a description of the licensing and inspection fee, removal of language for the ginseng program which is regulated through a separate rule, and general housekeeping updates.
Persons Affected: This rule affects businesses and individuals involved in the production, distribution, sale, purchase and installation of living plant material and plant propagation materials, including nursery growers, dealers, landscapers, plant retailers and wholesalers, as well as the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets.
Economic Impact: The economic impact of the amendment is neutral as the statute already requires affected parties to be licensed, the annual license fee is tiered by statute from zero to $50.00 depending on the size of the licensed operation, and inspection fees are likewise statutorily authorized.
