Elections and enrollment for the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) programs for the 2022 crop year began on Oct. 18, 2021, and will run through March 15, 2022.
The 2018 Farm Bill allows for changes to the farm election for 2022. Any producers wishing to make changes to the farm election must obtain signatures from all producers on the farm with an interest in the farm’s cropland acres (excluding Conservation Reserve Program acres) for the new election to be considered valid. Producers may elect to enroll in PLC, ARC-County or ARC-Individual programs for 2022. Elections to PLC or ARC-County are made on a covered commodity by covered commodity basis, and all covered commodity base acres are elected into ARC-Individual if that program is chosen. Failure to agree to an election change for 2022 by March 15, 2022, will result in the farm defaulting to the election made in the 2021 program year.
