Georgia Pecan Growers to vote on assessment renewal
Georgia pecan growers of 30 acres or more will vote in May on the renewal of a one-cent per pound assessment on pecans for the Georgia Agriculture Commodity Commission for Pecans. Under Georgia law, producers are required to vote every three years to renew the assessment. Voting takes place May 1-30, and all ballots must be postmarked by May 30. The back of the return envelope must be completed for the ballot to be valid. The commodity commission utilizes assessment funds for research, education, and promotion of Georgia pecans. Growers of 30 or more acres who have not received a ballot should contact Andy Harrison, at email@example.com.
