2019 ARC/PLC signup record high, ’20 signup underway
The Farm Service Agency says sign-up for the ARC and PLC crop safety net programs last year was a record high – and signup for 2020 is underway. FSA Administrator Richard Fordyce says the same elections apply for farmers this year but they need to confirm them by June 30th.
“The producer will just sign the application that they want to also participate in 2020 ARC/PLC. You know, they will not have to make those elections because the ’19 elections will carry forward into the 2020 crop year.”
2019 ARC/PLC contracts reached one-and-three-quarter-Million, twice as many as the average signup over the last five years.
