Is USDA’s ARC-IC Program A Good Fit For You?
Purdue ag economists Michael Langemeier and James Mintert focus just on the ARC-IC 2018 Farm Bill program to help clarify where it fits best. A longer more detailed version of all farm bill program choices was discussed in our January 16th webinar (click here to view). Decide how to choose from among USDA’s ARC-County, ARC-IC or PLC program choices when you sign your farm up for the 2019 and 2020 crop years. USDA’s sign-up deadline is March 15th.
