OSU's Dr. Amy Hagerman Explains the Differences in CFAP1 and CFAP2 for ProducersWed, 30 Sep 2020 15:10:17 CDT
Dr. Amy Hagerman, Assistant Professor in Agriculture and Food Policy at Oklahoma State University, explained how the second round is different during a recent interview with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Associate Farm Director and Editor KC Sheperd.
It is different from CFAP 1 that ended Sept. 11, said Hagerman.
It was focused on price triggers based on marketings between January and April. Round two includes flat rate and sales commodities.
For me, that's the first big difference, Hagerman said.
CFAP 2 really opened the door on other commodities, she said.
The first big difference under the price triggers is all wheat classes are now eligible, including winter wheat, she said.
This time the cattle are inventory based on non-breeding animals only, she said.
Flat rate commodities are the ones that didn't have enough price data and based on FSA crop report. Sesame and canola would fall into this category.
Sales level commodities based on 2019 sales or 2020 sales. Specialty crops such as pecans and grapes would be in this category.
The second round CFAP 2 will help those cattle producers who didn't sell their stockers until after April 15 and will receive $55 per head.
The deadline for applying is Dec. 11 and Hagerman encouraged producers to go the USDA FSA website, www.farmers.gov/cfap
One of the neat tools there is the commodity finder, she said.
There is also an Excel-based decision tool that will help fill out the CFAP application. Producers can contact county FSA office or OSU Extension staff for assistance.
Dr. Hagerman said CFAP 2 definitely fills a gap for producers, she said.
She added time will tell as the coronavirus impact is still evolving. Click on the listen bar below to hear more of KC's interview with Dr. Hagerman.
