Farm Service Agency (FSA) county committees are a critical component of the day-to-day operations of FSA and allow grassroots input and local administration of federal farm programs. Farmers and ranchers who are elected to serve on FSA county committees apply using their judgment and knowledge to help with the decisions necessary to administer FSA programs in their counties, ensuring the needs of local producers are met. FSA county committees operate within official federal regulations and provide local input on:
• Income safety-net loans and payments, including
setting county average yields for commodities;
• Conservation programs;
• Incentive, indemnity, and disaster payments for some
• Emergency programs; and
• Payment eligibility.
