by the California Avocado Commission
representing California avocado producers for
assistance. The Administrator will determine
within 40 days whether or not increasing imports
of avocados contributed importantly to a decline
in domestic producer prices of 20 percent or
more during the marketing period beginning
November 1, 2005, and ending October 31, 2006.
determination is positive, all producers who
produce and market their avocados in California
