The following Georgia Agriculture Commodity Commissions are seeking nominations of producers to serve on the following  commodity commissions:

  • Apple
  • Blueberry
  • Corn
  • Cotton
  • Equine
  • Milk
  • Peaches
  • Pecan
  • Soybean
  • Tobacco
  • Vegetable
  • Wine & Grape

Producers can nominate themselves, be nominated by someone else, or by an affiliated organization of that commodity. Appointments for the commissions are made by the Commodity Commission Ex Officio Committee in July and a term for a commission appointment is three years. A commission member can be reappointed for additional terms. A commission member’s responsibility is to represent the producers of that commodity by attending periodic meetings and making decisions on behalf of the producers.

Georgia Agriculture Commodity Commissions were created by the Georgia General Assembly starting in the sixties at the request of the producers of the commodity. These commissions help producers by representing and supporting the commodity. Funds or assessment collected through farmer approved market order may be used for research, education, and promotion of the commodity. Most of the commissions allocate a vast portion of the funds to research projects.
