The Department shall not renew the registration of a grower or producer who harvests a crop before the testing required by subsection 2 is completed.


Except as otherwise provided in subsection 3 and by federal law, a grower or producer whose crop fails a test prescribed by the Department pursuant to this section may submit that same crop for retesting. The Department shall adopt regulations establishing protocols and procedures for such retesting.
