The Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service has announced that importers and producers voting in a national referendum have approved the continuation of the Sorghum Promotion, Research and Information Order. As a result, the Sorghum Checkoff Program will continue to be funded by a mandatory assessment on producers and importers at the rate of 0.6 percent of net market value of grain sorghum and 0.35 percent of net market value for sorghum forage, sorghum hay, sorghum haylage, sorghum billets and sorghum silage. However, AMS notes that very limited imports exist at this time.
