ARC/PLC for the 2021 Crop Year.

Enrollment for the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) programs for the 2021 crop year is currently open. The deadline to enroll and make amendments to program elections is March 15, 2021. Producers have the option to enroll covered commodities in either ARC-County, ARC-Individual, or PLC. These are the same program options that were available to producers during the 2019 and 2020 crop years, but in some cases, producers may want to amend program elections to better manage the potential risks facing their farms during the 2021 crop year. OSU Extension will be offering two webinars this winter focused specifically on the ARC/PLC decision in 2021, reviewing decision-tool calculators available to evaluate options, and current market outlook, as well as a webinar focused on crop insurance decisions for 2021. There is no cost to attend. Register here.
