How to a Get a Farm Subsidy

Farming an agricultural land can be a profitable business, although challenging.

Naturally, the family who handles this type of business will need to have the capital to defray the expenses that will be needed in farming.

Among the usual expenses are land rentals or maintenance, purchase of seedlings, fertilizers and other things that will make anything that has been planted grow really well. It doesn’t mean however that if you don’t have the solid capital at hand; you don’t get the chance to get on with the business. There are many ways to get support for farming. Getting a farm subsidy from the government is one of them. Read on and know how you can avail of this program.

Who Gives the Subsidy?

The farming subsidy is granted by the State’s Department of Agriculture. This is to encourage more people to get into farming which is important for the production of food that the whole country needs. This is usually granted to farmers with small capitals and business that are just starting out. Through it, one is given the chance to have all the resources that he needs to come up with quality products. Besides this, The Department also grants another kind of subsidy where a farmer of a certain land is paid out just to give the land a break and not be farmed yet in order to restore the nutrients.

How to Apply?

To claim a farming subsidy, the first thing that you should do is to contact the agency concerned and have them review your application. They are more likely to visit your farm and determine whether or not you deserve the subsidy. The key here is to disclose all the necessary information that is asked of you. Do not attempt to withhold important facts because even if they grant the subsidy to you, when they later find out that you concealed important matters, sanctions will be imposed and you don’t want that to happen in any way.

Complete the Paperwork

As soon as the department officials say that your land can be used to apply for a subsidy, the next thing that you should do is to complete the requirements. These are usually paper works that will be used to evaluate your application. Included here are the title of the land, tax returns and other proof of transactions that concern your land. It is best to submit authenticated copies so that there will be no doubts for its appreciation. Be sure to submit everything within the given period.

What You Get?

After you have submitted the requirements, all you need to do now is to wait for the final determination. If you pass the screening, you will be receiving assistance of all sorts. While enjoying the benefits, be sure to stick with the terms and conditions that you have signed with the government lest your subsidy gets cancelled or revoked sometime soon.

  • Taylor said on April 30, 2012
    What kind of farm subsidies are you talking about? Federal subsidies? If so, they are generally NOT granted by State Ag. Departments. They generally come through the Farm Service Agency (FSA) or through the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), depending on what kind of subsidy you are applying for. There are also few federal programs that pay for things like seedling purchase or land rental. There are dozens of different kinds of subsidies, and most of them actually DO NOT go to small farmers. I can't tell if you are misinformed, haven't actually done your research, or are just doing a poor job of directing folks toward specific government programs. In any case, I don't really think this is going to help anyone.
