CCC Loans Delayed

CCC Loans Delayed

The USDA Farm Service Agency is reporting a delay in sign up for loans for temperate japonica rice due to needed software update. Software developers have been made aware of the urgency of the situation and will implement the fix as soon as possible. We have received reports that normal operations should be back up by mid-week next week. 

County offices are still able to take loan requests.
