USDA deadlines for Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) is March 31, 2015. Landowners need to update farm yield history and/or reallocate crop base acres.
If you miss the deadline your farm will not be eligible for 2014 crop year ARC or PLC payments. Your only option will be to enroll your farm in PLC for the 2015-2018 crop years and not ARC. Your farm’s current counter-cyclical yield and base acres will be used for PLC.
