OSU's Amy Hagerman Explains Latest USDA Coronavirus Assistance Package

Tue, 30 Mar 2021 11:08:15 CDT

OSU's Amy Hagerman Explains Latest USDA Coronavirus Assistance Package Producers curious or confused by the latest USDA coronavirus assistance package neednít worry as Dr. Amy Hagerman, Assistant Professor in Agriculture and Food Policy at Oklahoma State University explained some of the detail in a recent interview with Radio Oklahoma Agriculture Network Associate Farm Director and Editor KC Sheperd.

This is using some of the funds passed in December as part of the coronavirus assistance package, Hagerman said.

Their target is to hit any of those producers who may have not been covered by previous plans, she said.

They have really streamlined it for producers, she said.

For cattle producers, they are going to use CFAP 1 applications completed last year and use those to issue new payments

For row crop producers itís going to be a top off of $20 per acre for all of those producers under CFAP 2 application, she said.

This is good news for us in Oklahoma because all wheat classes are included in the $20 payment, Hagerman said.

Also included in this payment are crops without trigger prices, such as canola, she said.

For producers who have not filed an application, you havenít missed the boat, she said.

The program has been reopened and extended from April 5 for at least two months.

They really want to reach out and get anyone who wasnít included the first time around, she said.

If you have never applied for an FSA program there will be some additional steps.

The OSU policy expert said the first step should be to log onto the farmers.gov website and find your local office to schedule an appointment.

The FSA office staff will know specific rules about crops in every county and answer eligibility questions.

The important dates are April 5 when the application process opens and then stays open for at least 60 days.

We donít have a hard deadline date, she added.
