Georgia Pecan Commission Scouts Marketing Order for U.S. Department of Agriculture

The lucrative business of the Georgia pecan industry averages 88 million pounds every year, adding $100 million to the Georgia economy. That’s no small feat and it only seems to be growing. Soon, there is a possibility that the pecan industry could have a U.S. Department of Agriculture marketing order. That marketing order would open up promotion, data collection, and research of other pecan-growing states, fifteen states to be exact.
