Farmers Can Opt In or Out of ACRE Program; Sign-Up Begins Feb. 19

Producers can now choose to enroll in the Direct and Counter-Cyclical Payment Program (DCP) or the Average Crop Revenue Election Program (ACRE), when sign-up begins on Feb. 19. Originally, producers who signed up for ACRE could not move out of the program for at least five years. With the extension of the 2008 Farm Bill, those rules have changed, giving farmers an option to move out of ACRE into DCP or vice versa. Read more about DCP and ACRE or contact a local county office to sign up.
