One week remains for producers to sign up for the Average Crop Revenue Election Program (ACRE). Changes to this year’s program allow producers to choose to enroll in either ACRE or the Direct and Counter-Cyclical Payment Program (DCP). 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 move from DCP into ACRE. Producers must contact their county office by June 3 to enroll in ACRE. The deadline to enroll in DCP is August 2. Read more about DCP and ACRE or contact a local county office to sign up.
