Base Update Extension

The Secretary of Agriculture announced that USDA is providing a one-time extension of the deadline to update base acres or yield history for ARC/PLC Programs.

The extension gives farm owners and producers until March 31, 2015 to make their elections.   If no changes are made to yield history or base acres by March 31, 2015, the farm’s current yield and base will be used.

A program choice of ARC or PLC coverage also must be made by March 31, 2015, or there will be no 2014 payments for the farm and the farm will default to PLC coverage through the 2018 crop year.
