DCP, ACRE enrollment begin Jan. 23

Enrollment for the 2012 Direct and Counter-Cyclical Program (DCP) and Average Crop Revenue Election program (ACRE) will begin on Jan. 23, 2012.

USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) announced that enrollment for the 2012 Direct and Counter-Cyclical Program (DCP) and Average Crop Revenue Election program (ACRE) will begin on Jan. 23, 2012.

Generally, enrollment had begun on Oct. 1 for DCP and ACRE contracts but the agency said signup is beginning later than normal to provide FSA offices with an opportunity to process 2010 crop Supplemental Revenue Assistance Program applications and finalize supplemental agricultural disaster assistance programs. Also, because the 2008 farm law does not authorize advance direct payments for 2012, there is no incentive for producers to sign up early.

The FSA announcement reminded producers that 2012 ACRE elections may be made any time before June 1, 2012.
