USDA extends deadline on yield updates

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced last Friday that a one-time extension will be provided to producers for the new safety-net programs established by the 2014 Farm Bill, known as Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC).
The final day to update yield history or reallocate base acres has been extended one additional month, from Feb. 27, 2015 until March 31, 2015.
The final date for farm owners and producers to choose ARC or PLC coverage also remains March 31, 2015.
