Farm Service Agency reminds cotton producers of ginning cost share program’s May 31 deadline

USDA’s Farm Service Agency is reminding producers of the May 31 deadline for the Cotton Ginning Cost Share program. Through the program, cotton producers may receive a cost share payment, which is based on a producer’s 2016 cotton acres reported to FSA multiplied by 20 percent of the average ginning cost for each production region.

FSA is mailing a postcard to remind eligible cotton producers of the May 31 deadline. FSA mailed pre-filled applications with this deadline information to eligible cotton producers in March when the original signup was announced.

For more information on CGCS, producers should contact their local USDA service center.
