This final rule adopts provisions of the proposed rule, with the exception of changes that were made based on comments received in response to the proposed rule. The major changes are further discussed in the Summary of Comments portion of this final rule. Accordingly, this final rule sets forth the policies and procedures that the Consolidated Farm Service Agency (CFSA), formerly the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service (ASCS), will use to implement this end-use certificate program.
