FSA extends DCP sign-up

USDA’s Farm Service Administration has extended the deadline for enrollment in the 2007 Direct and Counter-Cyclical Program (DCP) from June 1 until Aug. 3. The enrollment period began Oct. 1, 2006.

Producers who have not enrolled in the 2007 program must do so before the Aug. 3 deadline.

FSA cited issues related to performance of the Web-based system and increased workload as reasons for the extension.

There will be a late enrollment period through Sept. 30 for farms that do not meet the Aug. 3 deadline, but producers will be assessed a $100 late fee on farms enrolled between Aug. 3 and Sept. 30.
