September deadlines for USDA programs

Posted on Monday, September 16, 2013 at 10:14 am

Missouri USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director Mark Cadle reminds producers of two important Direct and Counter-Cyclical Program (DCP) deadlines this month.

Producers who have either not yet enrolled in DCP or have not yet signed their DCP contracts must do so by close of business Monday, Sept. 16, 2013.

“It’s easy to get distracted during the harried harvest season, but producers should be careful not to let their DCP contracts and other important FSA business slip through the cracks,” said Cadle.

Additionally, Cadle reminds producers that any succession-in-interest changes made to an operation that affect interest in base acres since the current DCP contract on file was signed, must be reported to the local FSA office by close of business Monday, Sept. 30, 2013.
