U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue announced Jan. 8 that the USDA will extend the Jan. 15 deadline for submitting applications for trade-relief payments due to the partial government shutdown. The extension for submitting applications will be for a period equal to the number of business days FSA offices were closed once the government shutdown ends. The Almond Board of California (ABC) is continuing to urge eligible growers to submit applications as soon as possible. While USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) offices are closed due to the shutdown, growers can still download the short application and submit a complete copy online at www.farmers.gov.
