Louisiana Agricultural Commodities Commission

In 1982 the Louisiana Agricultural Commodities Commission (LACC) was established as the successor of the State Warehouse Commission. LACC is comprised of ten members, nine of which are nominated by various industries and appointed by the Commissioner.  The tenth member is the Commissioner. LACC is charged with the responsibilities of regulating warehouses, cotton merchants, and grain dealers doing business in Louisiana. The commodities which the commission regulates are:

Cotton

Rye

Rice

Soybeans

Barley

Grain Sorghum

Corn

Wheat

Oats

 

* Also, any other agricultural commodity which the commission declares to be a commodity. 

Prior to issuing licenses the LACC requires a financial statement, proof of provisional stock insurance, a bond to provide for monetary security and other support documents presented to the commission. All financial statements are carefully reviewed for financial stability to assure the Louisiana farmer payment for his product. LACC issues three types of licenses in accordance with Louisiana law. A warehouse license is issued to a person or entity operating a warehouse in which agricultural commodities are stored for the public for a fee. A cotton merchant license is issued to a person or entity that purchases or contracts to purchase cotton grown by farmers in the state. A grain dealer license is issued to a person or entity that purchases agricultural commodities from Louisiana farmers or represents Louisiana farmers in the sale of agricultural commodities.
