2020 continues to click along and producers are now to the point that they need to strongly consider whether they will opt for Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) or Price Loss Coverage (PLC). The deadline to enroll for either program is March 15th.
Dr. Paul Mitchell, Director of the Renk Agribusiness Institute at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, admits that this process can be confusing. It is because of that notion that Dr. Mitchell has offered producers his expert recommendations. “I have been working hard to get materials ready for UW Extension county agents and farmers making decisions about signup for ARC and PLC,” Mitchell says. He hopes that these materials can help everyone make better-informed decisions.
