Irish Potatoes Grown in Southeastern States: Termination of Marketing Order 953

Docket Number: AMS-SC-18-0037
Comments Due: September 24, 2018


This proposed rule invites comments on the termination of the Federal marketing order regulating the handling of Irish potatoes grown in Southeastern states (Order). The Order has been suspended, at the industry's recommendation, since 2011. Because the industry has not petitioned to have the Order reactivated, in accordance with the terms of the suspension, the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is proposing termination of the Order.
