March 27--  Friday, April 20 is the day this year that Vidalia Onion growers will start shipping this year's crop to market.

The pack date was set yesterday by the Vidalia Onion Committee and the Georgia Department of Agriculture.

Eighty registered growers in 20 southeast Georgia counties are authorized to sell the Sweet Vidalia Onions under the trademark established by the Vidalia Onion Act of 1986.

Last year officials says Vidalia Onions valued at more than $120 million were shipped to every state in the country.
