Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has begun distributing Conservation Reserve Program annual rental payments to participants across the country. The USDA also has begun distributing 2013 direct payments and 2012 Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) program payments. Payments originally were scheduled to be issued earlier in the month, but were delayed by several weeks due to the lapse in federal funding.

ACRE payments for 2012-crop barley, corn, grain sorghum, lentils, oats, peanuts, dry peas, soybeans, and wheat were to be released beginning Oct. 24 and contingent upon national average market prices and yields in each state. ACRE payments for upland cotton are scheduled to be made in early November, after the 2012-13 average market year price is published in the Agricultural Prices publication scheduled to be released Oct. 31. ACRE payments are scheduled to be made for large chickpeas, small chickpeas, canola, crambe, flaxseed, mustard seed, rapeseed, safflower, sesame, and sunflowers in early December, after the 2012-13 average market year price is published in the Agricultural Prices publication scheduled to be released Wednesday, Nov. 27. ACRE payments for long-grain and medium- and short-grain rice are scheduled to be made in early February 2014 after the final 2012-13 average market year price is published in the Agricultural Prices publication scheduled to be released Jan. 31, 2014.

The 2008 Farm Bill, extended by the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, provides authority to enroll land in Direct and Counter-Cyclical Program, ACRE, and Conservation Reserve Program through Sept. 30, 2013; however, no legislation has been enacted to reauthorize or extend this authority. Effective Oct. 1, 2013, the Farm Service Agency does not have legislative authority to approve or process applications for these programs.

For more information, producers should contact the Wilson County Farm Service Agency office located at 1106 10th St. in Floresville or visit www.fsa.usda.gov.
