Deadline to register for USDA programs looms

Val Dolcini, administrator of the USDA Farm Service Agency reminds farmers and ranchers that Sept. 30 is the last day to enroll for the Agriculture Risk Coverage and Price Loss Coverage programs. It’s also the deadline for the Margin Protection Program for Dairy. These programs provide important risk protection for farm and dairy operations, so it’s important not to miss the deadline for enrollment.

Producers already have chosen ARC or PLC, so now is the time to sign the contract and formally enroll.

The deadline for producers to enroll in the 2015 MPP program is also Sept. 30. Participating farmers will remain in the program through 2018 and pay a $100 administrative fee each year.

To learn more about these programs and other FSA programs, visit or contact your local FSA county office.
