CAP payments offered to some cotton, soybean producers


Adrian J. Polansky, state executive director of USDA's Farm Service Agency in Kansas announced that disaster payments are available for certain producers of 2009 upland cotton and soybeans that suffered losses because of excessive moisture or related conditions.

The Crop Assistance Program will make payments available to producers of eligible crops that received Secretarial disaster designations due to excessive moisture or related conditions in 2009. Eligible counties in Kansas include: Bourbon, Chautauqua, Cherokee, Cheyenne, Cowley, Hamilton, Haskell, Meade, Montgomery, Rice, Sherman, Stevens, and Sumner. The crop must have been physically located in an eligible county to be eligible for payment.

Producers of eligible crops on farms in disaster counties who had a 5 percent or greater crop loss in 2009 due to excessive moisture or related conditions will receive a payment based on the planted and considered planted acres of the crop. Per acre payment rates will be prorated by FSA in order to keep payments within available funds for the program. Producers will initially receive 75 percent of their CAP payment. The predetermined payment rates are: Soybeans $15.62 per acre and Upland Cotton $17.70 per acre. Signup for CAP ends Dec. 9.

The general eligibility provisions, payment limits and adjusted gross income limits that apply to FSA programs apply to CAP. Additionally, CAP payments will be treated as 2009 revenue under the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments Program.

CAP is funded through Section 32 of the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1935, which allows the Secretary to use funds to reestablish the purchasing power of farmers, ranchers and producers.

Producers of 2009 soybeans and upland cotton in eligible counties must sign-up no later than December 9, 2010. For more information about disaster assistance programs, visit a local FSA county office or online at http://disaster.fsa.usda.gov.
