USDA Mediation











Customers of the USDA have the right to appeal certain adverse decisions by using mediation. NYSAMP gives producers and USDA representatives a flexible and confidential way to clarify decisions and problems, explore options, and, when possible, to develop workable solutions.

 In New York, mediation is used by producers to appeal adverse decisions by the Farm Service Agency (FSA), Natural Resources and Conservation Service (NRCS), and Rural Development (RD), including:

  • -FSA agricultural loans, loan servicing and commodity programs
  • -RD loans and loan servicing for rural housing
  • -Conservation programs
  • -Wetlands determinations
  • -Crop insurance
  • -Pesticides
  • -Other situations which involve an individual producer and which, if not resolved, threaten the economic viability of the farm
