Important Deadline coming for ARC and PLC Programs

By Tyson Redpath, The Russell Group 

The U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency (FSA) reminds producers to enroll now in the Agriculture Risk (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) programs. March 15 is the enrollment deadline for the 2019 crop year.  Until March 15, producers who have not yet enrolled in ARC or PLC for 2019 can enroll for both 2019 and 2020 during the same visit to an FSA county office unless yield updates are requested. Additionally, farm owners have a one-time opportunity to update PLC payment yields that take effect beginning with crop year 2020.
