FSA provides direct payments to producers for retaliatory tariff losses

Due to the current tariff situation with China, the USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) has announced a market loss payment program called the Market Facilitation Program (MFP) for growers. This program includes a payment amount of 14 cents per bushel for wheat.

You can find more information about the program here. Producers may apply for MFP from September 4, 2018, through January 15, 2019.

Growers should contact their local FSA office to find out more about this payment.
