Governor Schwarzenegger has signed bills supported by farm groups. One helps farmers resolve disputes with buyers of agricultural goods. Another streamlines the registration process for new crop-protection tools. A third declares greenhouses to be agricultural operations. Some local governments had classified greenhouses as industrial businesses. The new law allows greenhouse owners to enroll their land in a state farmland-protection program. The state’s largest farm groups have endorsed the four reform measures supported by Governor Schwarzenegger.
