PD/GWSS Board Votes on 2014 Winegrape Assessment Rate
CDFA Secretary Karen Ross has approved the recommendation of the PD/GWSS Board that the winegrape assessment rate for the 2014 harvest be set at $0.75 per $1,000 of crop value. This keeps the rate at the 2013 assessment level.
Money raised from the assessment is used to fund research projects and other activities related to PD. Assessment funds may also be used for research, outreach and education for other pests and diseases that are designated by the PD/GWSS Board as threats to California’s winegrape industry.
