Farm Service Agency disaster program sign up
Minnesota State USDA Farm Service Agency State Executive Director Linda Hennen announced that the 2009 crop year Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments (SURE) program sign-up began on Jan. 10, 2011. SURE is a disaster program that provides assistance to farmers and ranchers who have experienced crop losses caused by natural disasters.
"Natural disasters can turn what would be a profitable crop year into a year of hardship and financial loss," said Hennen. "The SURE program is part of the 'safety net' that provides assistance to farmers and ranchers when disaster strikes".
For information on the 2009 SURE program eligibility requirements visit your local FSA office or www.fsa.usda.gov/sure.
The Wadena County FSA Office will be taking appointments, so contact the office ahead of time at (218) 631-2876, ext. 2.
