Prevent plant, the Market Facilitation Program 2.0 and the recent E15 announcement were on the agenda as South Dakota Representative Dusty Johnson met with farmers Friday afternoon. South Dakota Corn Growers Association Executive Director Lisa Richardson attended the meeting and explained there is still a lot of uncertainty for farmers. “There are possible new tariffs in place, Mother Nature isn’t being kind in the Dakotas, producers are uncertain of what’s happening and what’s to come. It was a good chance to learn more.” South Dakota farmers want to know more about MFP payments. Also, if and how prevent plant will be considered. “It is really just a big unknown at this time,” said Richardson.
