USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack is directing USDA to extend the comment period for the payment limits rule for an additional 60 days. Vilsack says, β€œLet's be clear – in no way is this move a signal that we will modify the rules for the 2009 crop year. Sign-up has begun and it's important that clear and consistent rules remain in place so that producers can prepare for the crop year and manage their risk appropriately."

USDA has received seven comments on the proposed payment limits rule.
