WHAT is a Washington State Agricultural Commission?
Agricultural commodity commissions were established in the 1930’s to address farmer’s needs and provide solutions to growing and marketing their crops. Their popularity is based upon the proposition that every producer contributes and benefits in proportion to the volume of the commodity they market. Washington State currently has 23 Agricultural Commissions.
Agricultural commodity commissions provide the means by which agricultural producers organize themselves, assess themselves and accumulate funds to address some of their industry’s needs.
