2012 and Prior ACRE Decision

Farmers and landowners who have not enrolled in ACRE keep the option to sign-up through 2012. USDA’s Farm Service Agency maintains a spreadsheet calculator which can be used to analyze the ACRE program with the latest program prices and yields for each state.

Texas A&M has constructed a spreadsheet calculator that incorporates variability of prices and yields for farmers who want to examine the benefits and costs of ACRE under a variety of uncertain scenarios. Archived presentations by Roman Keeney and Tamara Ogle explain appropriate use of these calculators for analyzing individual farm ACRE decisions. Other resources linked here offer discussion of the ACRE program rules and how they compare to alternative payment programs available to farmers.
