(c) Upon a second negligent violation within five years of a previous negligent violation, each licensee shall meet the following requirements:
(1) Correct the violation within 10 days of notification of the violation by the secretary, including the effective disposal of the industrial hemp crop if so ordered;
(2) for the duration of the time period specified in the corrective action plan, which shall be at least two years, provide a report to the secretary at least every 30 days, or as often as is required by the secretary, regarding the status of the violation; and
