BEAT THE RUSH!!
The USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) is reminding producers to enroll in the Agriculture Risk Coverage and Price Loss Coverage programs soon for the 2019 and 2020 crop years. Although more than 200,000 producers have enrolled to date, FSA anticipates 1.7 million producers will enroll for ARC and PLC. By enrolling soon, producers can beat the rush as the March 16 deadline nears.
If you have not already visited your local Farm Service Agency (FSA) county office to make your election for either the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) or the Price Loss Coverage (PLC) program and to sign your annual enrollment contract, you should call and make your appointment now.
March 16, 2020 is the enrollment deadline for the 2019 crop year.
ARC and PLC provide financial protections to farmers from substantial drops in crop prices or revenues and are vital economic safety nets for most American farms. These programs cover 20 commodities produced in the U.S.
If you fail to enroll by the deadline, you are ineligible to receive payment for 2019 ARC/PLC. Beat the rush and call your local FSA office today to schedule an appointment. <link>
