This is the last full week for farmers to complete the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) election and enrollment process for the 2019 crop year. Applications are due Monday, March 16. Producers must visit their local Farm Service Agency (FSA) office in order to enroll and make program elections for the 2019 crop year.
FSA urges applicants to enroll soon to beat the rush as the deadline nears.
For more information on selecting the best program for your operation, the National Coalition for Producer Education (NCPE), led by the University of Illinois - fd-tools.ncsa.illinois.edu and the Agricultural and Food Policy Center (AFPC) at Texas A&M University, in conjunction with the Food and Agricultural Policy Institute (FAPRI) at the University of Missouri - https://www.afpc.tamu.edu/tools/farmbill/2018/ have developed online decision calculators.
