2017 Florida Statutes
604.151 Purpose.—The Legislature recognizes that the recovery of agricultural products is impractical because of the speed with which such products move through commerce and because of the difficulty of identification and that, because recovery is impractical, producers are subject to the possibility of serious economic harm in the event an agricultural products dealer defaults. Therefore, it is necessary in the interest of the public welfare to regulate agricultural products dealers in this state. However, restrictions shall be imposed only to the extent necessary to protect the public from significant and discernible harm or damage and not in a manner which will unreasonably affect the competitive market.
