New Yield Data Available

Dec 23, 2014
WASHINGTON, DC -- Yesterday, Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Val Dolcini announced that Risk Management Agency (RMA) certified yield data has been made available for producers at FSA county offices.  Producers are encouraged to contact their local FSA offices to see what data they have on file from RMA.
This data will help producers make the one-time decision to update their commodity program payment yields or keep their current yields for the new Price Loss Coverage (PLC) and Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC) programs.  The data on file will be available only to the producer associated with the crop insurance record and the yield update decision must be made by February 27, 2015.
"The collaboration between FSA and RMA to provide producers with certified yields should help streamline the process of updating yields for the new safety net programs," said Ben Mosely, USA Rice Federation vice president of government affairs.  "Producers should take advantage of this opportunity and make appointments with their local FSA office as soon as possible."
