Public Meeting (Via Zoom): MT Oilseed Advisory Committee

September 8, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. (see call-in information)

The Montana Oilseed Advisory Committee will hold a virtual listening session on Tuesday, September 8th at 10:00 a.m. The listening session gives growers and stakeholders the opportunity to provide input regarding a proposed referendum, including the amount of the proposed assessment and method of collection.

The committee is proposing a 1% assessment on the following oilseed crops: mustard, soybeans, safflower, sunflower, flax and canola. Assessment funds will be used for research, market development, and education. Following the listening session, a ballot will be sent to all known growers to take a formal vote on the assessment.

The MT Oilseed Advisory Committee was formed after the Montana Department of Agriculture received a verified petition from 25 growers, and those present at listening sessions held thereafter unanimously expressed their support for proceeding with the formation of the committee.
