GDA regulates certain types of agriculture-related warehouse as well as any companies who deal in or distribute agricultural products. Regulation protects the Georgia producers who store their commodities at the warehouses or sell them to dealers.
Commercial agricultural storage facilities in the state are licensed, bonded, and inspected for inventory quantity and quality compliance. The regulated warehouses are cotton, grain, and tobacco. Dealers for these products are also required to have licenses.
Dealers in Agricultural Products
Non-warehouse facilities that GDA regulates include all businesses or individuals purchasing agricultural products (fruits, vegetables, pecans) from or selling for Georgia producers.
Livestock Markets and Dealers
Anyone who buys or sells livestock on commission must be licensed with the state. This license does not include poultry dealers. See our Poultry page for information on poultry dealer licenses.
