(WAUSAU, WISCONSIN), April 30, 2012 - FSA reminds producers that enrollment for the 2012 Direct and Counter-cyclical Program (DCP) and the Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) program will end June 1, 2012.
USDA computes DCP and ACRE direct payments using base acres and payment yields established for each farm. Payments will be issued in October to eligible producers at rates established by statute regardless of market prices. Annual contracts are required to be signed to receive program benefits.
Producers are advised to contact the Marathon County Farm Service Agency office to set up an appointment as soon as possible before the June 1, 2012, deadline.
All signatures must be obtained by the deadline for both the DCP and ACRE programs. In all cases, it is the responsibility of the operator and owners of a farm to obtain and submit all necessary signatures on election and enrollment forms by the June 1, 2012, deadline.
For more information or to schedule an appointment to enroll in the DCP/ACRE programs, please contact the Marathon County FSA office (715) 848-2330 at 326 River Drive, Wausau WI 54403 or visit
