(Press Release)

WASHINGTON, D.C. – National Sorghum Producers Legislative Committee Chairman and board director Dan Atkisson, a sorghum farmer from Stockton, Kansas, made the following statement in response to U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue’s announcement today regarding trade relief payments for farmers through the Market Facilitation Program.

“National Sorghum Producers appreciates the hard work USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue and U.S. officials have done to advocate on behalf of farmers through ongoing trade disputes. We respect the Administration for following through with their promise to stand by U.S. farmers, and we look forward to working with Secretary Perdue in providing much needed funds to sorghum farmers and other producers impacted by tariffs. NSP fully supports fairer and open trade and will continue to work with officials to achieve long-term trade solutions. U.S. sorghum farmers have faced tremendous uncertainty since February 2018, and this program will lessen some of that uncertainty and provide relief in rural America where it is needed most.”
