USDA Offering Decision Guides for ARC, PLC Programs
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 02/24/2020
Resources are available to help producers make decisions about enrolling in Agriculture Risk Coverage and Price Loss Coverage, commodity support programs administered by the USDA's Farm Service Agency for the 2019 and 2020 crop years.
PLC provides a price safety net, while ARC provides a revenue safety net.
The resources were developed and assembled by Paul Mitchell, UW-Madison professor and extension specialist in the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics.
"Your local FSA office will guide you on the information you need," Mitchell said. "They have a lot of farms to process by the March 15 deadline, and there is no value in waiting."
