The Agriculture Secretary should have no power to issue permits

So you're complaining that the Secretary will not be able to exercise a regulatory power (the power to prevent crops from being planted) that he does not legitimately possess anyway.

The federal government does not legitimately possess the power to tell me what crops I can plant. Full stop.

The 14th amendment incorporates the 5th amendment against the states. So the states do not legitimately possess the power to tell me what crops I can plant. Second full stop.
