Direct, Counter-cyclical signup nears
Stephen Svacina, executive director of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency in Wilson County, reminds producers that the deadline to sign up for the 2011 Direct and Counter-cyclical Payment (DCP) program is Wednesday, June 1.
Payments are calculated using base acres and payment yields established for each farm. Eligible producers receive direct payments at rates established by statute regardless of market prices. Advance payments of 22 percent on the 2011 program were available starting Dec. 1, 2010. The remaining 78 percent of the payment will be issued after Oct. 1, 2011.
Producers can fill out a contract at any Farm Service Agency Service Center or online.
