Farm payments to be sent
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has begun distributing Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) annual rental payments to participants across the country.
USDA also will distribute 2013 direct payments beginning Oct. 24. Payments originally were scheduled to be issued earlier in the month, but were delayed by several weeks due to the lapse in federal funding.
For more information on programs, producers should contact the Haywood County FSA office at (828-456-3557/ 589 Raccoon Road, Waynesville, NC 28786). .
