ISDA works with elected officials on the local, state and federal level to benefit all Hoosiers involved in the agriculture industry. The Department's function is to educate and to serve those who have the power to improve the direction of the agriculture industry in Indiana. The Department works with state agencies, rural communities, consumers, producers, and agricultural organizations to ensure Indiana has laws and regulations that are based in science and do not impede economic development in agriculture.
Our team serves as a regulatory ombudsman by assisting agricultural businesses with the permit process required to conduct business in Indiana. We promote the growth of agricultural businesses by serving as a liaison between agricultural businesses, state agencies, and local units of government.
