ACRE Payments for 2013 Crops Being Paid by FSA- The Final Payments from the 2008 Farm LawTue, 28 Oct 2014 05:41:46 CDT
U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director Francie Tolle announced Monday that FSA has begun distributing Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) payments for revenue losses associated with certain crops in Oklahoma. Discontinued by the 2014 Farm Bill, the ACRE program provided producers with protection from revenue losses for crops grown in 2009-2013.
Crops eligible for October payments include nonirrigated corn, irrigated upland cotton and wheat grown in the 2013 crop year. In Oklahoma, 4,360 producers on 6,444 farms enrolled 1,513,315 acres in ACRE. The Budget Control Act passed by Congress in 2011 requires these payments to be reduced by 5.1 percent.
For more information on ACRE, producers should contact their local FSA office- you can also find more information by going to the FSA website.
