Arkansas Farmers Need Help from USDA

Producers and organization representatives spoke in front of the Jefferson County Farm Bureau asking for USDA assistance sooner than later.
2009 was not an easy year for many farmers with abnormally cold weather and frequent heavy rains. Many fear that if USDA disaster and crop assistance is not handed out soon many farmers will have to call it quits.
The hardest part is that banks are working with farmers now to set up loans for the next year, but many farmers have an uncertain future.
Producers and officials are asking that the bureau support and push for the new legislation proposed to the House in mid-November that would disperse payments sooner than the normal May date.
Arkansas as a whole is expected to need $309 million in crop assistance.
