Sturm, Don: Sturm's Berry Farm

This is a Comment on the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) Proposed Rule: Assessment Rates: Blueberry Promotion, Research and Information Order

For related information, Open Docket Folder  Docket folder icon


Farmers are currently assessed at both the state and federal levels on blueberries. An increased fee will place further burden on an already struggling market. There is currently a surplus of frozen blueberries left in storage, and prices will most likely be down this year for blueberry growers. Therefore, I am against the hike in the assessment fee at this time.
