ST. PAUL — The Farm Service Agency and University of Minnesota Extension will host a free education meeting to help crop producers understand decisions regarding the 2018 Farm Bill reauthorization of ARC and PLC programs.

The meeting is from 10 a.m. to noon Dec. 18 at the Murray County 4-H Building, Slayton.

The ARC Program is an income support program that provides payments when actual crop revenue declines below a specified guarantee level. The PLC Program provides income support payments when the effective price for a covered commodity falls below its effective reference price.

All farm producers with interest in the cropland must make a farm program election by March 15, 2020. This election will apply to the farm for 2019 and 2020. Crops grown in Minnesota that are covered by this program include: corn, soybeans, wheat, barley, canola, sunflowers, oats, sorghum, lentils, dry peas, garbanzo beans and flax.

Those unable to attend may view an online presentation at farmbill.umn.edu.
