Michigan’s onion growers renew promotion program

Michigan’s onion producers have voted to continue the Michigan Onion Promotion and Development Program.  Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Director Gary McDowell says all seven major onion producers representing 347,384 hundredweight of production voted to renew the program for another five years and a majority of producers voted in favor of some other program changes. 

The program was created in 1977 to create greater opportunities for Michigan onion consumption and must be renewed every five years.
