US fruit and vegetable industry targeted for $2.7 billion in financial relief

President Trump and USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue announced some $2.7 billion in financial support targeted to the fruit and vegetable industry in response to the overwhelming losses from the COVID-19 emergency.

That support is divided with $2.1 billion allocated for direct payment to growers, and $100 million per month for the next six months in produce purchases, reports George Lauriat in the American Journal of Transportation (AJOT).
