FSA Administrator Confirms Third Tranche of 2019 MFP Payments

Ag Secretary Sonny Purdue announced on Monday that farmers who signed up for the Market Facilitation Program would be getting a 3rd round of payments, despite the signing of the phase one trade deal with China and the passage of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

KGNC AG Director Shannon Gray has more.
