To serve the citizens of Yuba County by
promoting and protecting agriculture and the environment and
providing a basis for value comparison and fair competition in

modern technology by a well trained and cooperative staff.
We are in the "people" business. Our success
is determined by those we serve. We value our diversity as
much as we value what we have in common. We are responsive and
courteous to all. We seek regulatory compliance through mutual
respect and understanding of the law.
Message from the Agricultural Commissioner and Director of Weights and Measures
The Yuba County Department of Agriculture -
Weights and Measures works in cooperation with the California
Department of Food and Agriculture and the California
Department of Pesticide Regulation to administer at the local
level a number of statewide enforcement programs which protect
the agricultural industry; the environment; public health,
safety and welfare; business trade and commerce; and the
consumer. The Department seeks to maintain an acceptable level
of compliance with respect to all programs it administers.
This is to be accomplished through education, communication
and when necessary, appropriate administrative action. If you
have questions regarding programs administered by this
department, please contact us.
