USDA Announces CFAP 2 Payments for Producers

Posted: Sep 18 2020


The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is implementing a second round of the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP 2) for producers of agricultural commodities marketed in 2020 who face continuing market disruptions, reduced farm-level prices, and increased production and marketing costs. For many crops, these additional costs are associated with declines in demand, surplus production, or disruptions to shipping patterns and marketing channels.
Canola growers will be paid a flat $15 per acre on eligible acres for 2020.  Canola is designated a flat-rate commodity because it did not meet the eligibility of a five-percent-or-greater national price decline between the designated dates of January 13-17, 2020 and July 27-31, 2020.  Eligible acres include the producer’s share of the determined acres, or reported acres if determined acres are not present, excluding prevented planted acres.


The application period for CFAP 2 opens Monday, September 21st and ends December 11, 2020.
