The below publication link contains the following helpful information:

-Details of the county based payment rate and potential maximum payments by county for non-specialty crops.  Most notably for Georgia this includes producers of cotton, peanuts, corn, soybeans, and wheat.

-Payment rates for specialty crop products (pecans), dairy, and hogs, including potential payments for each of these products produced in Georgia.

-Program deadlines, eligibility, and payment limits.

Our estimates are that GA agricultural producers may receive about $341 million in assistance to alleviate negative impacts from retaliatory tariffs.
