National Sorghum Producers Grateful to Administration for Second Market Facilitation Program

Thu, 25 Jul 2019 12:32:08 CDT

National Sorghum Producers Grateful to Administration for Second Market Facilitation Program U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue today announced further details of the $16 billion package to support American agriculture producers, including a second installment of the Market Facilitation Program. National Sorghum Producers Board of Directors Chairman Dan Atkisson, a sorghum farmer from Stockton, Kansas, made the following statement in response:


"National Sorghum Producers appreciates support from President Trump and Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue, following through a second time on their commitment to provide farmers needed relief from trade disputes.


“In times like these, sorghum farmers need all the support they can get as it has been a very tough year for farmers and ranchers across America. We are grateful the Administration has backed agriculture producers in the pursuit of fairer trade practices and long-term market solutions.


“We hope to see this program move forward in a timely manner with these payments out the door and into the hands of those who need it very soon. As trade negotiations with China continue next week, we also look forward and encourage our governments to have meaningful dialogues that lead to long-terms solutions.”


MFP payments will be made in up to three tranches with the second and third tranches evaluated as market conditions and trade opportunities dictate. MFP signup at local FSA offices will run from Monday, July 29 through Friday, December 6, 2019. For more information on the MFP, visit www.farmers.gov/mfp or producers can contact their local FSA offices.
