USDA Awards $6 Mil. to Universities, Extension Service for Farm Bill Decision Tools

PERSPECTIVE: The $6 million in total funds were earmarked in the farm bill, split evenly between universities and the extension service to educate farmers on their options under the new farm programs. Note: The last two sections in the table above (Winter 2014 and Early 2015) appear confusing and we are asking USDA for clarification. USDA responded as follows: “Late 2014, producers have to make their one-time election between PLC and ARC. In early 2015, that is when the annual enrollment for the program – PLC or ARC, based on their election – begins for 2014 and 2015.” No enrollment ending date or timeframe has been given.
