Cherry Advisory Committee Board


The Montana Cherry Research & Market Development Program was created by a vote of cherry producers following a process outlined in the Agricultural Commodity Research and Market Development Enabling Act.


The Cherry Research & Market Development Program is administered by the Montana Department of Agriculture, which receives advice from the five-member Montana Cherry Advisory Committee. The committee invites proposals to fund demonstration projects, applied research and market development projects designed to address Montana's cherry industry needs and opportunities.
