SHELDON, Iowa — Iowa producers have until March 15 to make their annual election for Price Loss Coverage or Agriculture Risk Coverage under the 2018 Farm Bill.

This annual decision impacts the 2022 crop year, consistent with the 2018 Farm Bill. Similar annual decisions, for the 2023 crop year, will coincide with the final year of the bill.

In order to help Iowans understand their options for 2022, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach and the USDA Farm Service Agency will host an in-person meeting from 9 to 11 a.m. Feb. 17, at Northwest Iowa Community College, Building A, Room 117, 603 W. Park St., Sheldon, Iowa. Preregister to (712) 957-5045.

Individuals who would prefer to attend a virtual learning session can visit the Ag Decision Maker Farm Bill information and resources webpage at extension.iastate.edu/agdm/info/farmbill.html.

Ag producers and landowners are encouraged to be proactive and attend an in-person or virtual session if they have questions about their options. There is no fee to attend, but preregistration is required.
