more on the check-off

This blog was started in an attempt to ask some questions of those supporting the proposed Christmas tree check-off. I am troubled by the fact that many supporters have not researched agricultural check-off programs, in fact, most of them have not checked out the check-off website.   It is not sufficient to state that the industry is in trouble– we need an industry wide promotion– therefore we need a mandatory check-off program. Supporters must provide details, such as promotion proposals, budgets, and goals.  They need to define the problem and provide evidence that the check-off will correct it.  I invite those both supporting and opposed to the check-off to comment on this page.
