Marketing orders are mandatory for all product suppliers within the geographic regulatory area, as long as they have been approved by a required number of producers (usually two-thirds).  An order may limit the quantity of products marketed or determine the quality, size, maturity, quality or price of the goods. The U.S. Department of Agriculture`s (USDA) Agricultural Marketing Department uses marketing orders to regulate the sale of dairy products and fruits and vegetables.  An order may be completed if the majority of manufacturers support their termination or if the USDA finds that the order no longer serves the intended purpose. Marketing agreements may have more diverse provisions, but can only be implemented against the maneuverables who enter into the contract. Milk marketing markets help ensure that dairy farmers have a reasonable minimum price throughout the year for their milk and ensure that consumers have sufficient supply of milk throughout the year, without the price of heavy and light milk production fluctuating considerably.

Marketing orders and agreements also authorize industry-wide production and marketing research programs, as well as promotion and advertising.
These efforts are designed to expand markets and increase demand for the commodity while research can increase yields, address production challenges and develop new products. “Marketing orders help produce businesses like yours succeed,” says Michael Durando, MOAD director. ”More than a decade at USDA, I have had the privilege of helping large and small commodity groups work together to achieve industry-wide marketing results. If your industry is ready to pioneer innovative practices, reach global markets and new consumers, and enhance consumer trust and commodity quality, we can be of assistance.” This proposed rule would modify the handling regulation prescribed under the marketing order for pears grown in Oregon and Washington. This action would increase from 14 pounds to 13 pounds, the maximum acceptable pressure for the early season variety anjou pears shipped to the continental United States and Canada in the period from August 15 to November 1. The maximum pressure for shipments of Anjou pears to Mexico during this period would remain at 14 pounds. In addition, this measure would remove the exemption from the handling requirements for anjou bulbs of 8,800 pounds or less. The Committee recommended these measures at its meeting on 26 May 2020. Marketing contracts and agreements are industry programs that help producers and handlers produce specialized fruits, vegetables and plants achieve marketing results. Through cooperation, industry members use their own resources to design and deliver programs that they could not implement as individuals.
The agricultural marketing department controls orders and marketing agreements for fruit, vegetable and specialty crops and ensures compliance with all requirements.
