Trade Adjustment Assistance for Farmers
AGENCY: Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.
The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS),
today accepted a petition filed by a group of fresh cut snapdragon producers for
trade adjustment assistance. The Administrator will determine within 40 days
whether or not increasing snapdragon imports contributed importantly to a
decline in domestic producer prices of 20 percent or more during the marketing
period beginning January 1, 2004, and ending December 31, 2004. If the
determination is positive, all producers who produce and market their fresh cut
snapdragons in Indiana will be eligible to apply to the Farm Service Agency for
no cost technical assistance and for adjustment assistance payments.
