Trade Adjustment Assistance for Farmers
AGENCY: Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.
On March 22, 2007, the Administrator, Foreign
Agricultural Service (FAS), denied a petition
for trade adjustment assistance (TAA) for
avocados that was filed on February 17, 2007, by
the California Avocado Commission.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Upon investigation,
the Administrator determined that imports from
Mexico for the November 1, 2005, through October
31, 2006, marketing year declined by 2 percent
from the same period in 2005/2006. Since imports
declined during the marketing year,
the petition did not meet the increasing imports
requirement, a condition required for certifying
a petition for TAA.
