Farm Bill Deadline Approaching @ Farm Service Agency
Feb 27 all-day

Don’t forget that February 27th is the deadline to reallocate base acres and update yields with the Farm Service Agency.  The new farm bill has two deadlines.  The first is February 27th, the date by which base acres must be reallocated and yields updated (if a producer chooses to do so), and the second deadline is March 31st.  March 31st is the date by which producers must choose one of the three program options, PLC, ARC-CO, or ARC-IC. To learn more about each option, go to and click on 2014 Farm Bill.  While it appears there is a month and a half left before the final deadline, the March 31st deadline may have some producers a bit too relaxed in their decision making.  To make a good decision about which program is right for your farm, you really need to decide whether to reallocate base acres AND choose a program option at the same time.  In reality, February 27th is the deadline farmers and landowners should be using.  An Excel spreadsheet that will help with the decision making process is available on the AgManager website.  The decision tool may be accessed by clicking on the following link:
