Farm bill deadlines approach

Deadlines are near for new safety-net programs established by the 2014 federal farm bill.

Farmers wanting to update yield histories or reallocate base acres must do so with the Farm Service Agency by Feb. 27.

The deadline for choosing between agriculture risk coverage and price loss coverage is March 31. Farmers who do not choose a program by the deadline will not receive payments for 2014, and will be automatically enrolled in price loss coverage through 2018.

To learn more, farmers can contact the Marion County Farm Service Agency at (620) 382-3714.
