Trade Adjustment Assistance for Farmers
AGENCY: Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA
The Administrator, Foreign
Agricultural Service (FAS), today
accepted a petition filed by the Olive Growers Council, Visalia,
California 93291, for trade adjustment assistance for olive producers
in the state of California. The Administrator will determine within 40
days whether or not increasing imports of processed olives in a saline
solution contributed importantly to a decline in domestic producer
prices of 20 percent or more during the marketing period beginning August 2003 and ending July 2004. If the determination is positive, all producers who market their olives in California will be eligible to
apply to the Farm Service Agency for technical assistance at no cost and for adjustment assistance payments.
