Upshur County farmers are being requested to report any significant storm damages to the local USDA Farm Service Agency office, announced Steven C. Nestor, County Executive Director.
The local FSA committee will utilize all damage reports to establish the need for unplementing the Emergency ConservationProgram, Nestor said.
Local farmers are reminded that the current ECP signup period for the June 29 storm will end Nov. 29.
