Fischer Introduces Legislation to Fight Democrats’ Radical Environmental Agenda, Protect Nebraska Producers
U.S. Sen. Deb Fischer (R- Neb.), a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, recently joined several of her Senate Republican colleagues in introducing the Food and Energy Security Act. The legislation would prohibit the Biden administration from forcing its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) agenda onto the American economy. Specifically, the bill would require federal financial and securities regulators to estimate the impact of their rules on affected businesses involved in the agriculture or energy supply chains. If any rules are estimated to drive up food, energy, or gas prices, the regulators would then be prohibited from implementing the rules during times of high inflation.
“The Biden administration is determined to impose their radical environmental agenda on our economy by enacting a new web of aggressive financial regulations. This effort will hurt Nebraska’s agricultural sector and small businesses, and raise prices for hardworking families. Our legislation would prevent these costly ESG rules from moving forward. Record inflation is already imposing hardships on the American people – the last thing our country needs is a more aggressive federal regulatory agenda that drives costs up further,” said Sen. Fischer.
"Nebraska farmers and ranchers are very concerned about the Biden administration's push to increase climate regulations on our nation's food producers such as the Securities and Exchange Commission’s proposed greenhouse gas reporting rule released earlier this year. The Food and Energy Security Act is a commonsense approach that will allow for thorough analysis on these types of regulations before they are enacted. We thank Senator Fischer for her continued leadership in pushing back against federal regulations that simply add additional costs, red tape, and legal liability to our nation’s farm and ranch families,” said Mark McHargue, President of Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation.
U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-South Dakota) led the introduction of the bill. Additional cosponsors include U.S. Sens. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Steve Daines (R-Mont.), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.), John Hoeven (R-N.D.), Jim Risch (R-Idaho), and Mike Rounds (R-S.D.).
Since President Biden was sworn into office, his administration has proposed rules and announced initiatives that would discourage banks, credit unions, and other financial firms from financing the fossil fuel industry and other sectors of the economy disliked by the far-left. In April, Senator Fischer joined her colleagues in pushing back on the Biden administration’s use of the financial regulatory system to advance its radical environmental agenda under the guise of mitigating banks’ and credit unions’ exposure to climate risks.

Manure: Ancient Fertilizer in a Digital Age
An expert in manure science and agricultural engineering will discuss the current state of manure management, inventory and nutrient needs among crop producers during an Aug. 10 webinar held by Iowa Learning Farms.
Daniel Andersen, associate professor of agricultural and biosystems engineering and extension agriculture engineering specialist at Iowa State University, will lead the discussion, called “Manure: Ancient Fertilizer in a Digital Age.” Andersen’s research and outreach focuses on manure management and water quality efforts, which include manure treatment and utilization, nutrient management and planning, field and farm-scale soil and water quality monitoring, and economic evaluation of alternative agricultural practices.
Iowa Learning Farms is an Iowa State University Extension and Outreach conservation and water quality education program.
He will also highlight the increased interest in carefully managed manure utilization as an offset to increasing fertilizer costs, as well as the potential for squeezing more value from manure to help the bottom line and improve water quality. Andersen will provide examples of management practices that can influence adoption decisions, as well as insights into new developments in equipment that will enhance control and effectiveness of manure use.
“We are striving to build trust with crop producers who are considering utilizing manure by addressing the variability of manure content through improvements in equipment and best practices,” said Andersen. “There is an opportunity in the current economic climate to promote agricultural manure management systems that are environmentally sustainable, economically feasible and socially acceptable.”
Participants in Iowa Learning Farms Conservation Webinars are encouraged to ask questions of the presenters. People from all backgrounds and areas of interest are encouraged to join.

USDA Announces August 2022 Lending Rates for Agricultural Producers
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced loan interest rates for August 2022, which are effective Aug. 1, 2022. USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) loans provide important access to capital to help agricultural producers start or expand their farming operation, purchase equipment and storage structures or meet cash flow needs.
Operating, Ownership and Emergency Loans
FSA offers farm ownership and operating loans with favorable interest rates and terms to help eligible agricultural producers, whether multi-generational, long-time, or new to the industry, obtain financing needed to start, expand or maintain a family agricultural operation. FSA also offers emergency loans to help producers recover from production and physical losses due to drought, flooding, other natural disasters or quarantine. For many loan options, FSA sets aside funding for historically underserved producers, including veterans, beginning, women, American Indian or Alaskan Native, Asian, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, and Hispanic farmers and ranchers
Interest rates for Operating and Ownership loans for August 2022 are as follows:
Farm Operating Loans (Direct): 4.000%
Farm Ownership Loans (Direct): 4.250%
Farm Ownership Loans (Direct, Joint Financing): 2.500%
Farm Ownership Loans (Down Payment): 1.500%
Emergency Loan (Amount of Actual Loss): 3.750 %
FSA also offers guaranteed loans through commercial lenders at rates set by those lenders.
You can find out which of these loans may be right for you by using our Farm Loan Discovery Tool (also available in Spanish).
Commodity and Storage Facility Loans
Additionally, FSA provides low-interest financing to producers to build or upgrade on-farm storage facilities and purchase handling equipment and loans that provide interim financing to help producers meet cash flow needs without having to sell their commodities when market prices are low. Funds for these loans are provided through the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) and are administered by FSA.
Commodity Loans (less than one year disbursed): 4.000%
Farm Storage Facility Loans:
o Three-year loan terms: 3.125%
o Five-year loan terms: 3.125%
o Seven-year loan terms: 3.125%
o Ten-year loan terms: 3.000%
o Twelve-year loan terms: 3.125%
Sugar Storage Facility Loans (15 years): 3.250%
Pandemic and Disaster Support
FSA broadened the use of the Disaster Set Aside (DSA), normally used in the wake of natural disasters, to allow farmers with USDA farm loans who are affected by COVID-19, and are determined eligible, to have their next payment set aside. Because of the pandemic’s continued impacts, producers can apply for a second DSA for COVID-19 or a second DSA for a natural disaster for producers with an initial DSA for COVID-19. The COVID-DSA is available for borrowers with installments due before Dec. 31, 2022, and whose installment is not more than 90 days past due when the DSA request is made. The set-aside payment’s due date is moved to the final maturity date of the loan or extended up to 12 months in the case of an annual operating loan. Any principal set-aside will continue to accrue interest until it is repaid. Use of the expanded DSA program can help to improve a borrower’s cashflow in the current production cycle.
FSA also reminds rural communities, farmers and ranchers, families and small businesses affected by the year’s winter storms, drought, hurricanes and other natural disasters that USDA has programs that provide assistance. USDA staff in the regional, state and county offices are prepared to deliver a variety of program flexibilities and other assistance to agricultural producers and impacted communities. Many programs are available without an official disaster designation, including several risk management and disaster recovery options.
