U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced earlier this month that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will provide more assistance to farmers in response to negative trade impacts resulting from tariff retaliation and trade disruption. The Farm Service Agency (FSA), will provide $14.5 billion in direct payments to producers who apply for them.

You can download an application by clicking here or you can visit the USDA website Farmers.gov for more information in determining what commodities are covered and what your payments may be.

Please note, the deadline to apply is December 6, 2019.
