Cherry Dumping has Growers Worried

Michigan produces 70 percent of the nation’s cherries but has been hurting from much cheaper cherries from Turkey being dumped here.


The federal government was placing tariffs on dried tart cherries from Turkey, the world’s largest producer.  But, the government decided to no longer place those tariffs.  Combined with some very rainy years and bug infestation causing many cherries to rot, many growers in Michigan now wonder if they can survive.
