Oct. 30 Deadline… ARCPLC Annual Enrollment.   You must complete your annual enrollment to be eligible for an ARCPLC payment.   If FSA has contacted you to complete your enrollment you need to do that now.
Nov. 15 Deadline… Fall Acreage Reporting.  Fall reporting is required for established perennial crops and for small grains and new perennial crops planted after July 15.   This is required to be eligible for a variety of programs.
Late Fees for Late Acreage Reports.  If you file late you will be charged a late fee ($46) for each farm and are subject to additional verification requirements prior to acceptance.  If we can’t verify it, we can’t approve it.  This has been the rule since 2012.   Spring planted crops and CRP have the same requirements, but with a reporting date of July 15.
NEW Grassland CRP.   Initial signup ends Nov. 20.   This new CRP is designed to protect expiring CRP and existing and re-established grasslands.  Offers will be graded for environmental benefits with the best offers selected.  Sanborn will pay $32/acre/year.  Jerauld will pay $30/acre/year.   Approved contracts will run 14-15 years while allowing restricted rights to hay or graze the CRP every year.   Cost shares are available for approved fencing and water projects.   Cost shares are NOT available for planting grass.  Visit www.fsa.usda.gov/crp.
