In early August, landowners reporting to FSA (Farm Service Agency) should have received a letter regarding Crop Base Acres, CC yields, and crop acres reported on each FSA Farm Number for each crop and county. This communication from FSA allowed the owner to review all FSA paperwork relating to the Agricultural Act of 2014 (2014 Farm Bill). Farm owners have the option of working with FSA to reallocate base acres and/or updating CC yields.

To update your yields, FSA will be working with you to fill out the FSA form CCC-859 Price Loss Coverage (PLC) Yield Worksheet. This worksheet requests crop production per acre by FSA Farm Number. The FSA form CCC-859 will require the use of actual yields and not adjusted APH yields. Owners choosing to update their yields and/or reallocate bases (one–time decision) must do so prior to February 27, 2015. Also as part of the 2014 Farm Bill, producers will have the option of choosing ARC-CO, ARC-IC or PLC as part of the new farm programs.
