Tobacco designation requirement removed

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is removing its requirement that burley tobacco farmers must designate where they will sell their tobacco following the first week of 2004 tobacco sales.

Previous regulations that governed the tobacco program required tobacco farmers to designate sale locations as a condition of eligibility to receive price-support loans.

Rescinding the designation requirement after the first week of sales will benefit farmers by letting them make, and act immediately on, decisions that affect their operation. The rule is effective for 2004 and until such time as the changes made by the Fair and Equitable Tobacco Reform Act of 2004 are implemented.
