FSA Contracts NEED to be signed by September 30


FSA would like to pass some information along concerning the possibility of farm program payments this fall under the ARC/PLC program. At FSA, we are concerned that only approximately 50% of the farms have completed the final step of signing the CONTRACT for the 2014 and 2015 program. Most coming through the door have no idea they need to complete this necessary Step 3 now to receive the 2014 program payment although it was discussed at program meetings and published in our news releases and email bulletins. FSA took some time to figure the payments and for 2014 program participants could receive as high as $70 per base acre for corn and $20 per base acre for soybeans. These payments will be beneficial but could be missed for some producers.

REMEMBER step three which is signing the “contract” for the program. Not completing this step will result in the farm being ineligible for 2014 and 2015 payments. Deadline to complete sign up for 2014 and 2015 is September 30, 2015. Deadline to compete sign up for 2014 and 2015 is September 30, 2015.

If you have questions please contact your local FSA office.
