Madison County USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director Mark G. Demott, announced that the 2009 crop year Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments (SURE) program sign-up begins on Jan. 10. SURE is a disaster program that provides assistance to farmers and ranchers who have experienced losses caused by natural disasters.
“Natural disasters can turn what would be a profitable crop year into a year of hardship and financial loss,” said Demott. “The SURE program is part of the safety net that provides assistance to farmers and ranchers when disaster strikes,” Demott said.
