FSA now accepting enrollment for ARC, PLC


U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) Custer County Executive Director Amy Mauler is encouraging producers on farms with base acres under the safety net programs established by the 2014 Farm Bill to stop in now to enroll for 2018 coverage.

Since shares and ownership of a farm can change year-to-year, producers on the farm must enroll in the safety net programs, known as the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) programs, by signing a contract each program year.

“Come inside and complete your paperwork during the cold weather,” Mauler said. “The average enrollment appointment takes less than 30 minutes and doing so now will save you valuable time when the weather warms and you need to be outside.”

For details regarding the ARC and PLC programs, go to www.fsa.usda.gov/arc-plc.
If you have not received a postcard for an appointment, please call the Custer County FSA Office at (308) 872-6877 ext. 2 or email Amy.mauler@ne.usda.gov to make an enrollment appointment.
