Watseka, IL., May 19, 2010 – Tamera Bohlmann, Executive Director of the Iroquois County USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) reminds producers that June 1, 2010, is the deadline for the 2010 Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) Program or the traditional Direct and Counter-cyclical Program (DCP). Annual contracts are required to be signed to receive program benefits. This is a mandatory deadline for all participants and USDA will not accept any late-file applications.
“It is critical for producers to begin the enrollment process now,” said Bohlmann. “Now is the time to call the office to make an appointment so you can get everything you need completed and signed by the June 1 deadline.”
All signatures of producers receiving a share in DCP/ACRE payments are required by the June 1, 2010, deadline.
