The deadline for farmers to sign up for two agricultural revenue protection programs comes on Tuesday. “ACRE” – which stands for “Average Crop Revenue Election” and the “Direct and Counter Cyclical Program” – or “DCP” – are both programs that are available to crop farmers which offer either revenue-based or price-based protection. Additional information and assistance on the programs are available by contacting Bob Wells at the Marion County ISU Extension Office at 641-673-5841. Again, the deadline to sign up for the 2010 ACRE or DCP programs is Tuesday.
