Farm Bill Choices
Webinar presentation by Purdue Economists Jim Mintert, Mike Boehlje & Michael Langemeier featuring a discussion of farm program choices that farmers and landowners need to make in early 2015. Programs discussed include ARC-County, PLC, and ARC-Individual, as well as base acreage reallocation and yield updating. Key considerations farmers should evaluate when making their program decisions are discussed.
This University of Illinois spreadsheet calculates Agricultural Risk Coverage for County Coverage (ARC-CO), Agricultural Risk Coverage for Individual Coverage (ARC-IC), and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) payments. County yields and market year average (MYA) prices are brought in for a user-specified state-county-crop combination. Users then can change 2018 through 2020 county yields and prices to see ARC-CO, ARC-IC, and PLC payments under those yields and prices.READ MORE
