    After nearly one year of effort by the Ohio Produce Growers & Marketers Association (OPGMA) and the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, Governor Kasich signed Senate Bill 309 on September 26, 2012. Sponsored by Senator Cliff Hite, R-Findlay, the new law creates voluntary agricultural marketing agreements in the state. The agreements will enable farmers to organize voluntary marketing initiatives for products like fruits, vegetables, and other commodities. The agreements will be self-supporting through fees paid by participants. The Ohio Department of Agriculture will assist in establishing the agreements.
