Online tools available for farmers, ranchers interested in 2008 Farm Bill
New online research and planning tools are now available for farmers and ranchers to assist in examining how the new 2008 Farm Bill programs apply to crops and operations.
Average Crop Revenue Election Program is a new revenue-based guarantee program administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency that assists farmers and ranchers in managing the risks inherent in agricultural operations. ACRE is an alternative to the traditional price-stabilizing Direct and Counter-cyclical Program.
The program is available at http://www.fsa.usda.gov.
Aug. 14 is the deadline to elect and enroll in ACRE for the 2009 Crop Year.
