California agricultural inspectors may be expected to get a much-needed break when a new state law goes into effect on June 4.
The new law allows inspectors to inspect more farms in the state and require more reporting.
California agricultural inspectors are now allowed to inspect a whopping 3.3 million farms.
The state’s agricultural inspection agency, CalEx, says it will begin issuing new inspection reports starting Monday.
The agency has also announced that it will start accepting new applications.
The state’s agriculture inspection agency says it expects to issue a new inspection report in the coming days.
If approved, the agency will issue about 2.6 million inspections.
According to the California Department of Food and Agriculture, the state has 1.4 million inspections conducted annually.
That’s a drop from 2.9 million in 2016.
But inspectors have had a difficult time keeping up with the number of applications they receive.
The inspector workforce in the field has grown by about 50 percent, from 2,000 to 3,000.
CalEx says that this year, it expects more applications to be processed.
And while it says that the number will likely be reduced, it is still expecting to process more applications than it did in 2016, when it processed 2.4.
That translates to a 3.4 percent increase.
The agency said it expects the increase to continue throughout the year.
That will allow it to add inspectors to the field and allow the agency to do more inspections.
As for the impact of the new law on the industry, Calex says it’s just a temporary break, as it will be in effect until 2020.
That means that it can continue its current work without having to stop all inspections.
Cal Ex is expecting to increase inspections in other states.
California will start requiring all applicants to complete an agricultural inspection before it can issue an inspection order.
The new law requires applicants to provide more information about their farm, such as the type of pesticides used, the number and types of livestock, and what kind of pesticides are used.
