Georgia's weevil assessment set at 50 cents per bale

Georgia's weevil assessment set at 50 cents per bale

• Georgia’s boll weevil eradication assessment has been set at 50 cents per bale for the 2011 crop.

The Georgia Boll Weevil Eradication Foundation Board of Directors met last month to review operations, approve the program's operational budget and set the 2011 assessment.

The board of directors set the 2011 crop year assessment at 50 cents per bale. The assessment was based on a projection of 1.5 million acres of cotton. Gins will collect and remit the assessment to the boll weevil program in the same manner as it was for the 2010 crop year. For information about the boll weevil program or assessment, call Executive Director Jim Wilson at (229) 263-9366.
