The latest round of Market Facilitation Program payments should begin to reach farmers by the end of this week. This is the third and final tranche of payments designed to mitigate losses from trade retaliation. The payments will be made on numerous crops, including soybeans, corn, wheat, barley, canola, dry beans and sunflowers. County payment rates range from $15 to $150 per acre based on the local impact of the trade losses. Dairy and hog farmers will also receive MFP payments, with the rate based on production.
