Signing Up for the Farm Bill ARC or PLC?
Thank you to U of M Extension Educator in Rice and Steele County Claire LaCanne for setting up today's AM Minnesota Program with Megan Roberts Farm Business Management Specialist with the U of M Extension office. The topic was signing up for the Farm Bill, should yo choose Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC) or Price Loss Coverage (PLC?)
Remember, the previous Farm Bill you made your choice and could not change it for the remainder of the 5 year Bill. Under the current Farm Bill you must signup each year and at that time you can decide which one you want, ARC or PLC. Also a bit confusing is Congress passed the current Farm Bill a little late. The first time we signed up it was retroactive for the first year as we signed up for the second year.
