A total of 21 US senators are urging the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) to extend its Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) to include all classes of wheat as durum and hard red spring wheat classes are covered under the program at present.

While hard red winter (HRW), soft red winter (SRW), and soft white wheat classes are not currently included in the program.

It should be mentioned here that CFAP will provide relief to US producers who faced price declines and other costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
