USDA announces bio-mass crop rule
US Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency State Executive Director Michael Sullivan announced that the final rule to implement the Biomass Crop Assistance Program (BCAP) is complete and available to view in the Federal Register. This 2008 Farm Bill Program is part of USDA’s effort to assist a developing bio-based renewable energy industry.
“In Mississippi, the Farm Service Agency is helping to lead the Administration’s effort to help rural communities create jobs, clean the environment and replace our dependence on foreign oil,” said Sullivan. “In every state, USDA’s green energy programs support rural economies and help build a healthy foundation for economic growth.”
