DCP Program Deadline Approaching

The sign-up period for the 2013 Direct and Counter-Cyclical Program (DCP) is coming to a close. Producers are encouraged to sign up for DCP before the August 2, 2013, deadline. The deadline to elect and enroll in the 2013 Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) Program was June 3, 2013.

Please contact your local FSA county office for more information

Acreage Reporting Deadline Extended to August 2, 2013

Risk Management Deadline Remains Unchanged

Farmers and landowners have an additional 18 calendar days to submit their annual report of acreage to their local FSA county office with the deadline extended from Monday, July 15, 2013, to Friday, Aug. 2, 2013. Only the FSA reporting deadline has been extended. The acreage reporting requirement for crop insurance has not changed and remains July 15.

Accurate acreage reports are necessary to determine and maintain eligibility for various programs, such as the Direct and Counter-cyclical Program (DCP); the Average Crop Revenue Election Program (ACRE); the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP); and the Non-insured Crop Disaster Assistant Program (NAP).

Acreage reports for FSA are considered timely this year when filed at the county office by the new applicable final crop reporting deadline of Aug. 2, 2013. Producers should contact their local FSA office if they are uncertain about reporting deadlines.

While FSA is able to extend its deadline, RMA's acreage reporting date remains July 15, 2013, for most spring planted crops in the country. Farmers are reminded to contact their insurance agent if they have any questions about coverage, prevented planting, or for reporting and processing a claim.

Producers should contact their local FSA office to complete acreage reporting. For questions on this or any FSA program, producers should contact their local FSA office or seek information online at www.fsa.usda.gov.
