High amount of disaster aid expected to be issued to farmers

The head of USDA’s Farm Service Agency in Nebraska says he expects a record amount of disaster aid to be issued to farmers.

John Berge tells Brownfield drought, wildfires and severe weather have hurt production agriculture. “The investments that are being made in terms of offsetting those disaster impacts whether it’s these types of programs or just crop insurance generally, I think we’re going to be amongst the highest since it’s so widespread.”

He says some producers can apply for phase two of the Emergency Relief Program by December 16th.
