Deadlines approach for FSA programs

May 15, 2006


June 1 is the deadline to enroll for this year's Direct and Counter-cyclical Payment Program.

The DCP program is administered by the Farm Service Agency.

Farmers missing the deadline will pay $100 for each farm signed up late, said Johnathan Alley, executive director for the Douglas County FSA. Producers receive an annual direct payment for each eligible crop, based on a formula.

May 31 is the deadline for:

¢ certifying 2006 small grain acreages; such reports are requirements for being eligible for many FSA programs.

¢ obtaining commodity loans and loan deficiency payments on 2005 cotton, corn, milo, soybeans, sunflowers and some minor oilseeds.

¢ applying for a 2005 white wheat production payment under the Hard White Wheat Incentive Program.
