Georgia peanut assessment vote deadline is April 15

By for CAES News

Georgia peanut producers have until April 15 to vote and return their ballots in a referendum to increase their assessment by $1 per ton of peanuts they sell. The assessment funds Georgia Peanut Commission’s promotion, research, education and communication programs.

The commission assessment has not been increased since 1980 when Georgia peanut producers voted to increase their assessment from $1 per ton to $2 per ton. A peanut producer who has not received a ballot should contact the GPC at (229) 386-3470.
