  • Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announces the launch of a Conservation Loan (CL) program that will provide farm owners and farm-related business operators access to credit to implement conservation techniques that will conserve natural resources.

    “This will give farmers who want to implement conservation measures on their lands a chance to do so by providing assistance with their up-front costs,” said Vilsack. “In return, these producers will help to reduce soil erosion, improve water quality and promote sustainable and organic agricultural practices.”

  • USDA’s Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) for Farmers program is for producers of catfish, shrimp and asparagus that are determined by the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) administrator to have been adversely affected by imports may apply for technical assistance and cash payments under the TAA for Farmers program. Producers establish eligibility for these program benefits by submitting an application at their local Farm Service Agency (FSA) Service Center.

  • Despite the horrendous heat and late-season drought conditions this summer, the perennial borders are still looking pretty good. We did do some spot watering but mostly careful consideration and selection of late summer bloomers has saved the day. 

    Bold and rather hardy perennials like Tartarian asters, helianthus, salvias, golden rod, Russian sage, Japanese anemone, ornamental grasses and Joe Pye weed are still stalwart and in bloom.  They have all anchored the fall garden well.
