Trade Adjustment Assistance for Farmers
AGENCY: Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA
The Administrator, Foreign
Agricultural Service (FAS), today accepted a
petition filed by the Spokane Hutterian Brethren, Reardan, Washington 99029, for
trade adjustment assistance for seed potato producers in the state of
Washington. The Administrator will determine within 40 days whether or not
increasing seed potato imports contributed importantly to a decline in domestic
producer prices of 20 percent or more during the marketing period beginning
February 2004 and
ending May 2004. If the determination is positive, all producers who market their seed potatoes in Washington will be eligible to apply to the Farm Service Agency for technical assistance at no cost and for adjustment assistance payments.
