Krautkramer, Athens, and elected another director, Keary Drath, Ogdensburg, to
the industry’s market orders board. They will serve a three-year term,
starting July 1.
seven-member Ginseng Board of Wisconsin is responsible for overseeing the
collection and use of about $170,000 in assessment fees paid by Wisconsin
ginseng producers. The money is used to support the industry through research,
market development and consumer education.
