Today’s Topic: Farmers are encouraged to continue to sign up for disaster aid

By on December 11, 2018

Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler sits down each week with Southern Farm Network’s Mike Davis to discuss “Today’s Topic.”

Even though the deadline to sign up for the Hurricane Florence Agricultural Disaster Program was Dec. 10, Commissioner Troxler urges farmers to continue to sign up for the program. An extension request is currently moving through the N.C. General Assembly.

“The deadline officially passed last night at midnight, said Troxler. “I encourage you to go online and get you name, address, phone number and social security number entered and you will be signed up tentatively.”

If you farm in a county that has been declared a primary Presidential or Secretarial disaster then you are eligible. More information is available online at www.ncagr.gov/agriculturaldisasterprogram.htm.
