Planting Payment Push: Senator wants USDA to offer payments to farmers to offset late planting impacts

A push for planting payments.

North Dakota Senator John Hoeven wants the USDA to offer producers payments to offset the likely reduction in yields due to troublesome weather. He confirmed to AgriPulse that the idea is under serious consideration at the Department.

And at this point, Hoeven and many producers believe they just need to get something in the ground. So, many Midwest farmers are stopping corn planting and turning to soybeans.

With much of the soil in the Dakotas and Minnesota too wet, many producers there were pushed to the final planting date to receive full crop insurance.
