Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.
The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), today accepted a petition filed by a group of five citrus producers for trade adjustment assistance. The group represents growers of navel oranges in the state of California. The Administrator will determine within 40 days whether or not imports of clementines contributed importantly to a decline in domestic producer prices of more than 20 percent during the November 2002-May 2003 marketing year. If the determination is positive, all producers represented by the group will be eligible to apply to the Farm Service Agency for technical assistance at no cost and adjustment assistance payments.Start Further Info
