Cite as: Cal. Food & Agric. Code §77986.
This chapter does not apply to any person who grows flowers only for his or her own home use or who is not a producer. However, any such person who markets flowers shall submit all required reports and shall file an affidavit with the commission establishing that the person grows flowers valued at less than the gross value established pursuant to Section 77918. The commission shall then determine whether the affidavit should be approved.
The commission may terminate the collection of assessments directly from producers and, instead, collect producer assessments from shippers or handlers who shall deduct the assessment from amounts paid by the shippers or handlers to the producers and who shall be trustees of the funds until they are paid to the commission at the time and in the manner prescribed by the commission.
