Description:

This series of half-d meetings by Dr. Art Barnaby and Dr. Mykel Taylor provides information on the decision that producers will face regarding the programs in the new Agricultural Act of 2014, particularly the PLC, ARC, and SCO programs. The new Farm Bill has several new programs for agricultural producers, but eliminates Direct Payments, Counter Cyclical Payments, SURE (Supplemental Revenue Assistance) and ACRE (Average Crop Revenue Election). The new Title I programs include Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC). Producers will have to make a one-time irrevocable decision this year to select one of the two programs. If they do not choose, the PLC is the default option and farmers/landlords who fail to make a decision will give up any 2014 payment. The presentation will provide analysis of both the primary programs (ARC and PLC) for the major crops in Kansas, as well as changes to crop insurance which have occurred. Th

Target Audience:

Producers, ag lenders, Extension professionals, agribusiness managers wanting to develop the ability to understand and make decisions or help others make decisions regarding the new farm bill of 2014.
