Agricultural Dealer’s Licenses

The Florida License and Bond Law aids in the marketing of agricultural products by providing a marketplace relatively free of unfair trading practices and defaults. The law helps assure that producers receive proper payment for their products and protects them against buyers who fail to pay.

Dealers in agricultural products must be licensed and bonded. To secure a license, they must file an application, pay a fee, and post a surety bond or certificate of deposit. If a dealer fails to pay for products, the producer may file a claim.

Complaints must be filed within six months of the sale or delivery of the agricultural product. The Complainant must provide a $50 filing fee for each complaint filed. If the claim is upheld, then money is taken from the dealer's bond and paid to the producer.
