BROOKINGS — The first deadline for signup for the 2014 Farm Bill is February 27, 2015. SDSU Extension and Farm Service Agency will be hosting informational meetings to provide information to producers on farm bill choices and requirements.

“At these meetings you will receive an explanation of updating yields, base acre reallocation, and election of programs between Agricultural Risk Coverage-County (ARC-CO), Agricultural Risk Coverage-Individual (ARC-IC), and Price Loss Coverage (PLC),” said Jack Davis, SDSU Extension Crops Business Management Field Specialist.
