LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan wheat producers are voting on whether to continue a program that promotes their industry.

The state Department of Agriculture and Rural Development mailed ballots to growers last week. Voting began Monday and continues through Jan. 22.

The Michigan Wheat Program was designed to support production, marketing and use of the state’s wheat.

Eligible voters must produce wheat for more than their own family’s use and have a value at first point-of-sale of more than $800 in any growing season within the last three years.

To be continued, the program needs more than 50 percent of votes cast.
