Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

Farm Progress America, September 16, 2022

Max Armstrong talks about payments made to farmers during 2020 via the CFAP program.

Let's talk about 2020, and the pandemic impact. So much uncertainty about food production on many levels. The CFAP paid out $31 billion dollars for various commodities during that time. Now the government accountability office is reviewing those payments. More than half of the payments may have potentially been improper, at least for those sampled during the review. The sample size in the review was 90 farms.

Max Armstrong's Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
