Since 1966, Congress has authorized the development of industry-funded research and promotion councils to provide a framework for agricultural industries to pool their resources and combine their efforts to develop new markets, strengthen existing markets and carry out important research and promotion activities. AMS oversees 22 boards, funded by industry assessments, helping to ensure financial accountability and program integrity.
