Agriculture Law

Agriculture law deals with the role of government in agricultural production and the state and federal regulations surrounding agricultural practice. Today, farmers and ranchers must deal not only with the general laws relating to commercial transactions and real estate, but are also faced with questions regarding water rights, environmental rules, finance, credit, and litigation concerning government programs. Due to the evolving nature of agriculture and the peculiar impact of tax, growth management, water use, chemical regulation and other laws affecting this industry, it is in your best interest to consult with a lawyer who specializes in this area of law.
