Coverage Selection for New 2014 Farm Bill Safety Net Programs Begins Nov. 17

Producers can begin enrolling in one of two safety net programs beginning Monday, Nov. 17. The Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) programs were created under the 2014 Farm Bill and are designed to help producers better manage risk. “The new ARC and PLC programs provide a more rational approach to helping farmers manage risk by ensuring families don’t lose the farm because of events beyond their control,” said FSA Administrator Val Dolcini. Online tools are available to help producers with the decision process. Farmers can enter information about their operation and see projections that show what ARC and/or PLC will mean for their operation under possible future scenarios. Learn more about ARC/PLC or use the online tools.
