The Michigan Onion Committee yearly research meeting was scheduled for 2/10/2022. This meeting is now scheduled for 3/8/2022 at 3:00pm in the Ottawa Room at the Amway Grand Plaza in Grand Rapids, MI.
2022 is the year for an onion referendum vote. The vote will take place for growers May 2 – May 13. Growers will receive a ballot in the mail.
At 5:00pm on March 8, 2022, a public hearing will be held. The Michigan Onion Committee is hoping to change the programming language prior to the vote. This language change will allow appointed onion committee members to serve more than two consecutive 3 year terms. Appointed onion committee members will still be required to apply every 3 years. The public hearing will be at the Amway or can be joined online at:
