The Memphis-based Black Farmers and Agriculturists Association called on President Donald Trump to accept a court ruling that could lead to payouts over $1 billion to growers who were denied assistance based on race, The Commercial Appeal reports.

The case was originally brought by Earnest Lee Boyland, a farmer from Mason, Tennessee.
