Enrollment Opens for Cotton Transition Assistance Program

Producers interested in enrolling in the Cotton Transition Assistance Program (CTAP) can do so starting Monday, Aug. 11. The program provides interim payments to cotton producers during the 2014 crop year until the Stacked Income Protection Plan — a new insurance product is available. Details on the plan will be released by mid-August. “The Cotton Transition Assistance Program is another milestone in USDA’s ambitious timeline for implementing the provisions of the 2014 Farm Bill. Cotton producers now have a risk management tool in place,” said Garcia. “To help us provide the best service possible, cotton producers are encouraged to schedule an appointment with their local Farm Service Agency office early in this enrollment period,” added Garcia.
