The U.S. Department of Agriculture will conduct a referendum July 5-26 to ask blueberry growers whether they want to continue the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council.
Under the marketing order, the USDA is required to conduct a continuation referendum of the national research and promotions program every five years, according to a news release.
The USDA will mail ballots directly to blueberry growers and importers in late June.
The results will be based on a simple majority of the number voting, and a majority of the volume voted.
If you do not receive ballot by July 5, contact the USDA or the Highbush Blueberry Council at firstname.lastname@example.org.
