Enrollment in the 2012 Direct and Counter-cyclical Program (DCP) and Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) Begins January 23, 2012
Lexington, KY- John W. McCauley, FSA State Executive Director, reminds Kentucky producers that the enrollment date for DCP and ACRE Programs has changed and will begin on January 23, 2012. Generally, in the past enrollment began October 1 for DCP and ACRE contracts. As required in the 2008 Farm Bill, there are no 2012 advance direct payments for DCP and ACRE therefore there is not an incentive for producers to enroll early.
The 2012 ACRE elections may be made any time after January 23, 2012 and before June 1, 2012.
