The Ohio Farm Service Agency (FSA) would like to remind Ohio producers who have not contacted their local FSA Office about DCP or ACRE enrollment to do so before the sign-up deadline ends. It is important producers contact their local FSA office to set up appointments before the June 1, 2012, deadline.
All signatures of producers receiving a share in DCP/ACRE payments are required by the June 1, 2012, deadline.
For more information about the DCP/ACRE programs please visit your local FSA office.
June 1, 2012 is also the deadline to apply for assistance for 2010 crop losses under the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments (SURE) Program. The program provides crop disaster assistance payments to eligible producers on farms that have incurred crop production or quality losses.
FSA wants to ensure that all eligible producers are aware of the approaching deadline. SURE covers producers on farms in disaster counties that incurred crop production, crop-quality losses or both, but in order to qualify, farmers need to file in a timely manner. FSA encourages anyone with questions to visit their local FSA office.
A producer interested in signing up for SURE for their 2010 crops must do so before close of business June 1, 2012, at the county FSA office servicing the producer.
For more information or to apply for assistance please visit your local FSA office.
