The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District recently received over $30 million in additional U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) funding to augment its grant program to replace old agricultural tractors and low-dust harvesters.

The District will use $20,000,000 from this grant for its Tractor Replacement Program. The funding will support the replacement of approximately 526 older, high-polluting tractors with significantly cleaner Tier 4 tractors.

Timely and verified rejections of fresh commodities at contract destination do occur, making it very important to know precisely how to handle your next moves. Once a contract has been amended, the seller must know how to hold the handler accountable to ensure they’ve maximized the forwarded net proceeds once all sales are completed.
