The 2021 sign-up deadline with the USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) for Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) or Price Loss Coverage (PLC) is March 15, 2021. This annual decision is unlike the previous farm bill, when producers made a one-time decision for their operation that was in place for the life of the bill. The ISU Extension and Outreach Farm Management Team is hosting this webinar series to reach Iowa producers, safely and effectively, as they make their 2021 sign-up decision.
