Clarke, Decatur producers reminded of approaching deadlines
Joyce Frost, county executive director of USDA’s Farm Service Agency for Clarke-Decatur counties, reminds producers some farm program deadlines are fast approaching. June 3 is the deadline for enrolling in the 2013 Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) Program, and the final date to apply for the 2011 Supplemental Revenue Assistance Program (SURE) is June 7. May 31 is the final loan availability date for corn, grain sorghum and soybeans. These are statutory deadlines for all participants in these programs.
“Farmers are finally in the field and deadlines are fast approaching. It is important that producers sign up or submit needed program documents timely,” said Frost.
For the 2013 program year, all eligible participants may choose to enroll in either DCP or ACRE. This means that eligible producers who were enrolled in ACRE in 2012 may elect to enroll in DCP in 2013 or re-enroll in ACRE in 2013. Likewise, producers who were enrolled in DCP may enroll into ACRE for the first time in 2013. The deadline for enrollment into DCP is August 2, 2013.
