ARA sent a letter to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Sonny Perdue and the US Department of the Interior (DOI) Secretary David Bernhardt supporting the Klamath Water Users Association's three recommended priorities for the Trump administration at the Klamath Project.
"ARA ag retailer members provide essential crop inputs such as fertilizer, seed, and crop protection products to their farm and ranch customers, including in areas located around the Klamath Project," says ARA President and CEO Daren Coppock in the letter.
Read the letter to see the three priorities ARA supports on behalf of ag retailers.
On Aug. 26, Secretary Perdue responded to Coppock in a letter saying USDA and DOI are collarobating to assess drought relief needs and potential USDA programs to address current conditions in the Klamath Basin.
