Today’s Cotton Newsline is 2 cuts. All cuts are Reece Langley, Vice President of Washington Operations for the National Cotton Council.
Suggested Introduction 1:
This week the Department of Agriculture released details on the Wildfires and Hurricanes Indemnity Program Plus, or WHIP +. This is a follow up to the earlier version of the program that was designed to respond to the wildfires and hurricanes that occurred during the 2017 crop year. Reece Langley, Vice President of Washington Operations for the National Cotton Council, joins us with the details including some improvements he sees in this year’s program.
Suggested Introduction 2:
Langley does see a drawback in the new version of the program though - the payment limitation level has been reduced.
