Sorghum Referendum Underway

Sorghum Referendum Underway

Producers need to vote by end of the month.

A referendum on the continuation of the Sorghum Checkoff Program is underway at local Farm Service Agency offices for producers and at certain Agricultural Marketing Service offices for importers.  Ballots may be obtained in person, by mail or facsimile at county FSA offices, or via the internet.  The referendum will continue through Feb. 28, 2011.

The Sorghum Promotion, Research, and Information order requires a referendum be conducted no later than three years after the start of assessments, which began on July 1, 2008. A simple majority vote for the program is necessary to continue the Sorghum checkoff.
