|USDA farm programs helped producers weather a tough 2019, marked by natural disasters and unjustified foreign retaliatory tariffs. In addition to providing
much-needed financial relief, USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, Farm Service Agency, and Risk Management Agency were busy implementing the most recent Farm Bill.
They also made huge strides in enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of programs for farmers and operations. Highlights included support for prevented planting, disaster relief, trade relief, Farm Bill implementation, customer service and technology advances, Farmers.gov, and creation of the FPAC Business Center.
