Farmers have options with farm bill

YANKTON, S.D. (WNAX) – Farmers have some options to consider with farm bill enrollment approaching. Yankton Crop Insurance Agent Dave Hubbs advises producers to talk to their crop insurance agents about which program to sign up for. He says there are three options, PLC, ARC County and ARC Individual that producers can choose from at their local Farm Service Agency Office.

He recommends producers choose ARC Individual if they have a lot of prevent plant acres.

South Dakota Corn Growers Executive Director Lisa Richardson says there are tools on the FSA website to help producers make their farm bill decisions and after this year, the opportunity to re-sign-up will be available.

The farm bill enrollment deadline is March 15, 2020.
