Wisconsin to open direct payment applications June 15th
Wisconsin Ag Secretary Designee Randy Romanski tells Brownfield applications for the 50 million dollars in direct payments to farmers will start June 15th and be open for a two-week application window.
Romanski says the payments will be available to farmers making between $35,000 and five million dollars on their Schedule F revenue form. Each farmer will be eligible for between $1,000 and $3,500 on a sliding scale.
Romanski says the applications will be handled online through the Wisconsin Department of Revenue.
He tells Brownfield more information will be posted to the DATCP website soon, and farmers should get ready to apply.
