Michigan cherry growers approve referendum

Michigan cherry growers have voted to continue the Michigan Cherry Promotion and Development program.

Established in 1972, growers must vote every five years to renew the program. Three-quarters of votes cast, representing nearly 90 percent of production, approved the referendum.

Producers are currently assessed $10 per ton of sweet or tart cherries and $5 per ton of cherries sold for juice which is used to create greater marketing opportunities for Michigan cherries.
