The Commission administers the dry bean check-off, the assessment rate is 10 cents per hundredweight, two-thirds of the check- off is paid by the grower; one third of the check-off is paid by the first purchaser. The Commission invests the check-off funds in programs of research, education, and promotion to increase total consumption of dry beans on a state, national, and international basis.
