Producers encouraged to sign up for DCP, ACRE
Tunica County USDA Farm Service Agency Executive Director Aaron Robinson announced the opening of the enrollment period for the 2012 Direct and Counter-cyclical Program and the Average Crop Revenue Election Program. The last day for producers to sign up for either program will be June 1, 2012.
Since 2009, producers have had the option to participate in either DCP or ACRE. A producer who initially chose to enroll in DCP has the option to switch to ACRE during the 2012 enrollment period; however, producers who chose to enroll in ACRE cannot switch back to DCP.
