Georgia vegetable growers have made their voices known: The Georgia Vegetable Commission marketing order has been extended for an additional three years.

Producers overwhelmingly voted to extend the assessment of one cent per marketing unit by producers with more than 50 acres crops that include green beans, bell pepper, specialty pepper, carrots, broccoli, beets, eggplant, cabbage, sweet potatoes, cantaloupes, cucumbers, greens, squash and tomato.

The balloting period for the market order was conducted from Feb. 1 through March 2, 2021, and 87.67 % of the eligible ballots returned voted yes.
