Farm Bill Tools & Webinars

The 2014 Farm Bill offers farmers a one-time opportunity to select a crop program for the next five years (2014-18 crop years). Illinois FSA offices plan to begin accepting enrollments Oct. 9.

The first step for farmers is to determine whether to update payment yield or reallocate base acres. For more, click here.

The 2014 Farm Bill offers grain farmers three risk management options:

  1. Agriculture Risk Coverage – individual (ARC-IC)
  2. Agriculture Risk Coverage – county (ARC-CO)
  3. Price Loss Coverage (PLC) with the option to buy Supplemental Coverage (insurance) Option (SCO)

For more details and calculator tools to evaluate the options for your farm, click here to visit the Farm Bill toolbox from University of Illinois farmdoc. On the toolbox site, farmers can also sign up for informational webinars to be held Oct. 3, Oct. 10, Oct. 17 & 24.
