I have an update for you as you prepare to make your one-time election decision about ARC PLC safety-net programs. These important decisions need to be made by Tuesday, March 31. That includes landowner decisions on whether to update yields and or reallocate base acres.
Agricultural Risk Coverage or Price Loss Coverage programs were designed by Congress to protect your farms overall economic health. You need to decide which program is best for your farm by Tuesday, March 31.
You still have time to plug your farm information into one of our website calculators to help with this decision. The tools can be found on our website at www.fsa.usda.gov. I urge you to use one of the tools and then to visit your local FSA county office.
Make your program choice by Tuesday, March 31.
And remember, we’re here to help, so contact us today.
