Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.
The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), terminated the certification of a petition for trade adjustment assistance (TAA) on December 12, 2006, that was filed by a group of Florida avocado producers. Florida avocado producers are no longer eligible for TAA benefits in fiscal year 2007.End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
Upon investigation, the Administrator determined that U.S. producer prices for fresh Florida avocados were 39 percent higher than the base five-year average price. Therefore, producer prices were no longer a contributing factor for program eligibility—a requirement for TAA program eligibility and therefore insufficient grounds to re-certify this petition.Start Further Info
