FSA reminds farmers of approaching deadline

Send a link to a friend

[April 29, 2011]  There is only one month remaining to enroll in the 2011 Direct and Counter-Cyclical Payment program, known as DCP, and the Average Crop Revenue Election program, known as ACRE. Spring planting has been delayed, so get in and sign up now before planting is in full swing. Signup will continue through June 1.

All DCP and ACRE participants must sign their contracts annually. There are no late provisions for accepting late-filed applications, so if all signatures are not obtained by June 1, the farm will be ineligible for all 2011 DCP and ACRE payments.

Producers can visit any USDA Service Center to complete their 2011 DCP-ACRE contract or make use of the FSA website.

Please contact the Lincoln Service Center, 1650 Fifth St., phone 217-735-5508, if you have any questions or concerns.
