Last December, a new Farm Bill was signed and put into place. Since then, programs continue to be implemented and updated. Two of the programs are the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) programs. Producers will have until March 15, 2020 to sign up for either program for the 2019 crop year.
The links below are from sources we think will give you the necessary information and tools needed to make an informed decision about which program is best for you.

ND county FSA offices will be conducting producer meetings November – February. When you make an appointment, the county will need to know which program you’d like to enroll your farm in (PLC, ARC-CO, ARC-IC) and have yield information available if you plan to update your PLC yield in 2020.
