As round two of trade aid goes out, some are still waiting for their first payments

Posted: Updated:

The second round of trade aid payments are on the way and while some farmers received the first round, others still wait.

While the second round of trade aid is projected to go out soon, some farmers in states like Texas are still waiting for the first round of market facilitation payments and USDA officials say they don't know what's causing the delay.

And Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue, says he hasn't heard of any delays.

"Frankly, what I've heard is that it's been pretty smooth out there on that… you've had two disasters back to back, two market facilitation programs in a row… I would encourage you all to have people you know of who have not received the first tranche of MFP… we'll dig down and find out why that is."

FSA administrator, Richard Fordyce, says offices have been busy, but the Farm Service Agency is committed to getting everyone taken care of.

Perdue says if you or someone you know hasn't gotten their MFP payments, reach out to your local USDA Farm Service Agency office and file a complaint.
