FSA Asking Farmers to Sign Up for ARC/PLC Before Deadline

By Mark Askelson markkrjb@loretel.net (2/13/20)

Ada, MN -- Although the deadline for farmers to make an election in ARC or PLC is more than a month away, the Norman County FSA is strongly encouraging growers to come in and make that choice sooner rather than later. The deadline for the 2019/2020 enrollment is March 16th, but Norman County FSA Director Randy Tufton says they are still looking for a lot of people to come in yet.

Tufton believes that farmers are delaying in making an ARC/PLC decision because they want to make sure they have most accurate information possible, and that information keeps changing as we get closer to the deadline.

Tufton notes that there are ARC/PLC calculators available through the USDA, NDSU, and other sites online. You don’t need to make an appointment to come in and make the election at the Norman County FSA. For more information, call 218-784-4000. They will be closed on Monday in recognition of President’s Day.
