The election and enrollment deadline for 2019 ARC/PLC is March 16, 2020.
The majority of producers in Redwood County, have not been in to elect either ARC or PLC for their farms for 2019. March 16 is the deadline, which is fast approaching.
One does not want to miss this deadline, as doing so will cause those who do to forfeit any 2019 crop year payments, if triggered.
