Market Facilitation Program

          Are you a farmer or rancher whose commodities have been directly impacted by unjustified retaliatory tariffs, resulting in the loss of traditional export markets? The Market Facilitation Program was created for producers just like you.

          The Market Facilitation Program - administered by the USDA Farm Service Agency - will provide payments to eligible producers of soybeans, sorghum, corn, wheat, cotton, dairy, hogs, shelled almonds, and fresh sweet cherries.

          Producers can submit Market Facilitation Program applications beginning on the following dates and ending on January 15, 2019.

  • September 4, 2018 for producers of soybeans, sorghum, corn, wheat, cotton, dairy, and hogs. NOTE: You can begin signup anytime, but corn and bean signup cannot be completed until you know your yields (must be in dry bushels).
  • September 24, 2018 for producers of shelled almonds and fresh sweet cherries  

For additional information, see flyer below (only the first page of the fact sheet is posted; to see both pages, click below ) or contact your local FSA office (Angola USDA Service Center: 260/665-3211, extension 2).
