UNL and FSA to Host Series of Meetings on 2014 Farm Bill


UNL and FSA to Host Series of Meetings on 2014 Farm Bill

UNL Extension and the USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) are joining to provide educational meetings across the state on the 2014 Farm Bill.

It's important that growers have information they need as decisions regarding commodity program selection are complex and will last for the duration of the farm bill. These meetings will primarily focus on the Base Reallocation and Yield Update decision, as well as the ARC and PLC programs.

Topics will include:

  • The farm bill program sign-up process, including documentation needed and deadlines
  • Base, yield and commodity program decisions; considerations for your operation
  • How to calculate farm program payments
  • Online decision-aid tools to help you determine which program is best for your operation. Input data specific to your operation and examine various options

Schedule

Meetings are listed by geographic area. FSA contacts for further information are listed for most sites.
