USDA to Extend Farm Bill Signup One Week

ga-usda to extend farm bill signup one week-150327WASHINGTON, DC -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended the deadline for farmers to reallocate their base acreage and update yield, and to make a choice between the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) programs until April 7.  The previous cutoff date had been March 31.

"Growers need to go into their local Farm Service Agency (FSA) offices and fill out the paperwork," said John Owen, a Louisiana grower and Chairman of the USA Rice Federation Producers' Group.  "These deadline extensions have been helpful but they're not going to go on indefinitely."

USDA's reports show that almost 98 percent of producers have already updated yield and base, and close to 90 percent of producers have enrolled in one of the programs.
