Three-year terms begin July 1.

The state's ginseng producers recently re-elected Alan Hopperdietzel of Athens and Courtney Untiedt of Edgar to the Ginseng Board of Wisconsin, according to the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.

Both directors will serve three-year terms beginning July 1.

The ginseng board consists of seven members elected by their peers. The board administers the marketing order that assesses 20 cents per pound of dry ginseng root sales. Currently, extensive research is being conducted with the University of Michigan to develop new pesticides for approval for use on ginseng plants.
