The sign-up period for the 2013 Director and Counter-cyclical Program (DCP) and Average Crop Revenue Election Program (ACRE) will begin on Tuesday, February 19, 2013.
The 2013 DCP and ACRE program provisions are unchanged from 2012, except that all eligible participants in 2013 may choose to enroll in either DCP or ACRE for the 2013 crop year. This means that eligible producers who were enrolled in ACRE in 2012 may elect to enroll in DCP in 2013 or may enroll in ACRE in 2013 (and vice versa).
Under these programs eligible farmers and landowners will receive direct payments and other safety net protection afforded under the programs. The ACRE sign-up ends June 3, 2013. The DCP sign-up ends August 2, 2013.
The Fillmore County FSA office is now taking appointments for the sign-up period. Please call 402-759-4463.
