Background

This rule increases the assessment rate established under the cranberry marketing order for the 2001-2002 and subsequent fiscal years from $.08 to $.18 per barrel of cranberries handled. This assessment rate increase was recommended by the Committee to fund a domestic market development program to increase demand for cranberries and cranberry products and thus expand cranberry shipments. The rule was issued under Marketing Order No. 929, as amended (7 CFR Part 929). The order is effective under the Agricultural Marketing Agreement Act of 1937, as amended (7 U.S.C. 601-674).
