KDA staff will contact you to schedule the inspection upon receipt of your request.

Producers should request inspections approximately 2 weeks prior to harvest to allow time for scheduling.

Inspection fees are $30 per hour for service and travel time (rounded to the nearest quarter hour) plus roundtrip mileage from the inspector’s duty station and the distance between fields. The mileage rate is equivalent to the current federal rate. Inspections are billed after completion.
