Last week the USDA announced the 2019 trade assistance payment rates for the Market Facilitation Program. The attached publication 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.
