The Farm Service Agency’s new Quality Loss Adjustment Program signup deadline is Friday, April 9. In an exclusive interview with the Red River Farm Network, FSA Associate Administrator Steve Peterson said additional time was needed for the signup. “We recognized the fact there was additional work and policy clarification that needed to be done.” Originally, the program called for documentation about quality loss and the discounts. Peterson said there has been widespread concern about that documentation process in North Dakota. “We are making an exception to the documentation to enable a producer to get a letter from the elevator or possibly have the elevator identify based on the date that they sold their feed wheat or feed barley what that price would have been if they would have been able to sell it for milling or malting.” More than 8,100 applications have been filed. FSA will make payments after the application period ends. Hear the interview.
