[October 11, 2012]  SPRINGFIELD -- Scherrie V. Giamanco, state executive director for the USDA Farm Service Agency in Illinois, announced that FSA will issue Conservation Reserve Program and Direct and Counter-Cyclical Program payments during the first few weeks of October.

"FSA will issue the payments timely as long as all producer eligibility requirements are met," said Giamanco.

CRP and DCP payments could be affected if producers have not submitted the required forms for adjusted gross income. Affected producers will need to submit the proper AGI forms before payments can be issued. In addition, producers who signed up for CRP emergency haying and grazing and did not pay in advance will notice that their annual rental payment was reduced by the acreage that was hayed or grazed.

"Producers who were affected by county office consolidations will not experience payment delays," said Giamanco. "All county office payments, regardless of consolidations, will be generated at the same time as long as all other eligibility requirements are met."

For more information on CRP and DCP payments, contact your local county FSA office.
