NAWG is pleased that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) intends to move forward with the implementation of the Actual Production History (APH) adjustment for the 2015 spring-planted crops.

“On behalf of NAWG and the 22 states we represent, I thank Secretary Vilsack for working with his team to implement the APH provision for 2015 spring crops,” said Paul Penner, NAWG president and wheat grower from Hillsboro, Kan. “This provision will be another tool for wheat growers across the country to strengthen their safety net, particularly for growers who have experienced multi-year disasters. We are hopeful that USDA will continue to work on implementing this provision for our winter wheat growers this year.”
