About the Arkansas State Plant Board License

The Arkansas State Plant Board is a government agency that regulates the use and sale of plants in the state. It was created in 1916, when Arkansas passed its first law regulating plant sales. The Arkansas State Plant Board licenses all nurseries operating within the state and inspects them regularly to make sure they’re following regulations regarding proper labeling, disposal of waste material and other important matters. Nursery owners must also follow strict rules regarding how they handle chemicals used on their crops; these include keeping records of what chemicals were applied where and when they were used (or whether they were not used at all).

The board also regulates the sale of plants and seeds by consumers, making sure that those who sell them are licensed to do so. It can investigate any nursery or plant seller suspected of breaking the law and has broad powers to enforce its decisions against offenders.
