USDA BEGINS BRINGING STAFF BACK INTO ITS COUNTY OFFICES
Agri-Pulse reports:

The Farm Service Agency is bringing more employees back into some of its local offices. According to a statement provided to Agri-Pulse, as much as half of the FSA workforce can be back on site in service centers that are "doing mission critical work." FSA offices had been limited to having 25% of their workers on site.

The USDA statement said the change was based on advice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Even with employees working remotely, program sign-up levels and other service levels are consistent with the past two years, the statement said.

Take note: North Dakota Sen. John Hoeven, the top Republican on the Senate Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee, has been pushing USDA to get as many employees as possible back in the local offices. Farmers "would prefer to go in" the local offices and talk to staff in person, Hoeven told Agri-Pulse.
