Kansas FSA State Director David Schemm joined us on Thursday’s Ag Issues program. He went into detail on the announcement made earlier in the week by the Trump Administration and Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue on the release of the 2nd round of Market Facilitation Payments that will be aimed at assisting farmers suffering from damage due to unjustified trade retaliation by foreign nations. Producers of certain commodities will now be eligible to receive Market Facilitation Program (MFP) payments for the second half of their 2018 production. He says you still have to sign up for the payments, through January 15, 2019.
