What is the purpose of the Council?
The Arizona Iceberg Lettuce Research Council conducts research for an Arizona industry that produces more than 29 million cartons of iceberg lettuce annually. The Council reviews and awards a wide range of research proposals on topics such as variety development and lettuce pest eradication. Awards are also made for programs relating to production, harvesting, handling and hauling lettuce from fields to markets. Council members are appointed by the Governor and consist of seven producers:
Four from district one (including Yuma and La Paz Counties)
Three at large
