Texas Farm Service Agency Sate Executive Director Judith Canales urges farmers and landowners to contact local FSA offices immediately to take advantage of the opportunity to update yield and reallocate acreage base.
Canales, speaking Friday at the Texas Ag Forum in Austin, said farmers should contact FSA before the February 27 deadline to get on a registry and set an appointment to update yields and reallocate base.
She also reminded growers that March 31 is the deadline to select either the Price Loss coverage (PLC) or Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC) programs created in the Agriculture Act of 2014.
“The deadlines are not changed,” she said. She also noted that updating yield and base acreage is extremely important as the decisions made now will last throughout the life of the farm law.
