2020-21 CRB Assessment Rate Set

Based on a recommendation by the Citrus Research Board, the California Department of Food and Agriculture (Department) has established an assessment rate to be levied on citrus producers during the 2020-2021 marketing season, which is the period of October 1, 2020 through September 30, 2021. The assessment rate for the 2020-2021 marketing season has been set at three cents ($0.030) per 40-pound standard field box, or the equivalent thereof, on all types and varieties of citrus, as defined by the California Citrus Research Program, marketed by producers and received by handlers or processors. The 2020-2021 assessment rate is one and eight-tenth cents ($0.018) less than the rate that was in place during the prior marketing season.
