To serve the citizens of Mendocino County by promoting agriculture,
fostering public confidence in the marketplace through our inspection
programs, protecting the environment and the public by regulating and mitigating pesticide use, and protecting against alien and exotic pests through eradication and preventing introduction of new pest species.
The Department of Agriculture is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 pm to 5pm. Our front counter is closed on Mondays from 3 to 5 pm for staff meetings.
Our Weights & Measures division will again provide for the annual calibration of growers' orchard thermometers for accuracy. Growers wishing to have their thermometers checked should deliver them to our office at 890 N Bush St. prior to 5:00 pm on Tuesday February 9, 2016. The thermometers may be picked up anytime on or after Friday, February 12, 2016. Office hours are from 8 am to noon and 1 pm to 5 pm.
Upon delivery, growers will be asked to attach a name tag to each thermometer. Attach the tag to the top end (not the bulb end) using string. Do not use rubber bands or wire. Thermometers must be clean of chemicals dust or they will not be tested. They should be stored bulb-end down in a sturdy box.
