Trade Adjustment Assistance for Farmers
AGENCY: Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.
The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural
Service (FAS), today terminated the
certification of a petition for trade adjustment
assistance (TAA) that was filed by a group of
Indiana fresh cut
snapdragon producers. Indiana fresh cut
snapdragon producers are no longer eligible for
TAA benefits in fiscal year 2007.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Upon
investigation, the Administrator determined that
U.S. producer prices for Indiana fresh cut
snapdragon were 13 percent higher than the base
five-year average price. Therefore, producer
prices were no longer a contributing factor for
program eligibility--a requirement for TAA
program eligibility and therefore insufficient
grounds to re-certify this petition.

Pajot, Coordinator, Trade Adjustment Assistance
for Farmers, FAS, USDA, (202) 720-2916,
