The commissioner or the commissioner's authorized agent shall sample, inspect, and grade grains received or distributed from grain warehouses at such time and place and to such an extent as the commissioner may deem necessary to determine whether sampling, inspection, and grading conducted by the warehouse operator conforms with the standards set by the Board of Grain Standards. The commissioner may obtain any additional information the commissioner deems necessary and is authorized to enter upon any public or private premises during regular business hours in order to carry out the provisions of this subdivision.
