FRANKFORT – Kentucky growers have until April 5 to submit comments about a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) proposal that would change some agricultural water requirements for produce growers, Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture Dr. Ryan Quarles announced.

“The FDA recently notified the Department of Agriculture about potential new changes to agricultural water requirements for our produce growers,” Commissioner Quarles said. “These changes may affect you and before they do, it’s important for Kentucky growers to provide feedback to help improve the rule. Now is the time to have your voices heard.”
