The director of agriculture or his duly authorized representative may enter any property, public or private, in order to make inspections to determine whether or not there is compliance with sections 905.01 to 905.11 of the Revised Code or if any agricultural additive is useful for agricultural production in this state. If refused entry he may apply for and the court of common pleas may issue an appropriate warrant.
The director may suspend or revoke the registration of an agricultural additive if he finds that the additive does not produce the results or effects shown on its label or that the distributor or manufacturer has violated any provision of sections 905.01 to 905.11 of the Revised Code or any rule adopted thereunder. Before he suspends or revokes the registration of an agricultural additive, he shall afford the registrant the opportunity of an adjudication hearing in accordance with Chapter 119. of the Revised Code. However he may suspend the registration before such a hearing if he believes that the use of the additive in this state endangers the public health or safety or constitutes an imminent and substantial threat to agricultural production or the public welfare.
