USDA outlines SURE for 2011, 2012 crops
Tunica County USDA Farm Service Agency Executive Director Aaron Robinson, announced that legislative authority for the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments program ends on September 30, 2011. Producers must meet specific eligibility requirements to receive SURE assistance for disasters that occur on or before September 30, 2011, and affect fall 2011 and 2012 crops.
“The SURE program compensates producers for production and/or quality losses during times of disaster,” said Robinson.
Producers can apply for a 2011 or 2012 SURE payment if a crop of economic significance located in a primary or contiguous disaster county under a Secretarial Disaster Designation suffered at least a 10 percent loss because of disaster occurring on or before September 30, 2011.
