ND Agricultural Producers Invited to Attend Important Farm Bill Meetings


USDA North Dakota Farm Service Agency (FSA) is partnering with the North Dakota State University Extension Service to host a series of informational meetings to discuss the Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) programs authorized by the Agricultural Act of 2014.

The 2014 Farm Bill authorizes three program election options: PLC, ARC-County (ARC-CO) and ARC-Individual (ARC-IC). Producers must make a one-time decision to retain or reallocate crop bases, to retain or update program payment yields and select the type of coverage (price protection, county revenue protection, and/or individual revenue protection) for the 2014-18 crop years.

The informational meetings will explain the program election, base allocation and yield update process.

Meetings will be held in the following locations:

October 9, 8am-10am, Williston, Williston Research Extension Center, 14120 Highway 2

The meetings are free and open to the general public.

“Farm owners and operators have a lot of decisions to make for these new programs and we want to make sure everyone has as much information as possible before making enrollment choices,” said Aaron Krauter, North Dakota FSA State Executive Director. “All interested producers, regardless of operation size, should join us to learn more about these new programs.”

For more information about the meetings, please contact your local FSA office.
