DEADLINE - Kansas Sorghum Commission Candidate Petition

Commodity Commission History

The passage of HB 2674 (K.S.A. 2-3001) by the 2000 Kansas Legislature changed the structure of the commodity commissions (corn, grain sorghum, soybeans, wheat and sunflowers) effective July 1, 2000. Under this new structure, each commission is considered an “instrumentality of the state.” The commissions manage their operations in the private sector, and conduct elections for producers to vote on the commissioners they want to manage their crop’s research, promotion and education programs funded with check-off funds. The 2020 election cycle will involve districts 4, 5 and 6.
