North Dakota’s Farm Service Agency and North Dakota State University’s Extension Service are partnering this fall to host a series of informational meetings to discuss the Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) programs authorized under the Agricultural Act of 2014.
The 2014 Farm Bill authorizes three program options: PLC, ARC-County Level, and ARC-Individual. Producers must make a one-time decision to retain or reallocate crop bases, retain or update program payment yields, and to select the type of coverage (price protection, county revenue protection, and/or individual revenue protection) for the 2014-2018 crop years.
The informational meetings will explain the program election, base allocation and yield update process. Producers can attend a session at one of the following locations:
Grand Forks October 7 8-10 am Alerus Center, Ballroom 3
Langdon October 7 1-3 pm Langdon Research Extension Center, 9280 107th Avenue NE
Devils Lake October 8 8-10 am Devil’s Lake Memorial Building, 4th Avenue NE
