Avocados Grown in South Florida and Imported Avocados; Change in Maturity Requirements (5 page(s), in English)
Proposed rule - This proposed rule would change the maturity requirements currently prescribed under the Florida avocado marketing order. The order regulates the handling of avocados grown in South Florida and is administered locally by the Avocado Administrative Committee (Committee). The proposed change would establish beginning and end dates for the annual maturity shipping schedule. A corresponding change would be made to the avocado import regulation as required under section 8e of the Agricultural Marketing Agreement Act of 1937.
