Farmers Can Now Make 2023 Crop Year Elections, Enroll in Agriculture Risk Coverage and Price Loss Coverage Programs

Agricultural producers can now change election and enroll in the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage programs for the 2023 crop year, two key safety net programs offered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Signup began Monday, and producers have until March 15, 2023, to enroll in these two programs. Additionally, USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) has started issuing payments totaling more than $255 million to producers with 2021 crops that have triggered payments through ARC or PLC.

2023 Elections and Enrollment

Producers can elect coverage and enroll in ARC-County (ARC-CO) or PLC, which provides crop-by-crop protection, or ARC-Individual (ARC-IC), which protects the entire farm. Although election changes for 2023 are optional, producers must enroll through a signed contract each year. Also, if a producer has a multi-year contract on the farm and makes an election change for 2023, they must sign a new contract.

If producers do not submit their election by the March 15, 2023 deadline, their election remains the same as their 2022 election for crops on the farm. Farm owners cannot enroll in either program unless they have a shared interest in the farm.

Covered commodities include barley, canola, large and small chickpeas, corn, crambe, flaxseed, grain sorghum, lentils, mustard seed, oats, peanuts, dry peas, rapeseed, long grain rice, medium and short grain rice, safflower seed, seed cotton, sesame, soybeans, sunflower seed, and wheat.

Web-Based Decision Tools

In partnership with USDA, the University of Illinois and Texas A&M University offer web-based decision tools to assist producers in making informed, educated decisions using crop data specific to their respective farming operations. Tools include:

Gardner-farmdoc Payment Calculator, a tool available through the University of Illinois allows producers to estimate payments for farms and counties for ARC-CO and PLC.
ARC and PLC Decision Tool, a tool available through Texas A&M that allows producers to obtain basic information regarding the decision and factors that should be taken into consideration such as future commodity prices and historic yields to estimate payments for 2022.
2021 Payments and Contracts

ARC and PLC payments for a given crop year are paid out the following fall to allow actual county yields and the Market Year Average prices to be finalized. This month, FSA processed payments to producers enrolled in 2021 ARC-CO, ARC-IC, and PLC for covered commodities that triggered the crop year.

For ARC-CO, producers can view the 2021 ARC-CO Benchmark Yields and Revenues online database, for payment rates applicable to their county and each covered commodity. For PLC, payments have been triggered for rapeseed and peanuts.

For ARC-IC, producers should contact their local FSA office for additional information about 2021 payment information, which relies on producer-specific yields for the crop and farm to determine benchmark yields and actual year yields when calculating revenues.

By the Numbers

In 2021, producers signed nearly 1.8 million ARC or PLC contracts, and 251 million out of 273 million base acres were enrolled in the programs. For the 2022 crop year signed contracts surpassed 1.8 million, to be paid in the fall of 2023 if a payment triggers.

Since ARC and PLC were first authorized by the 2014 Farm Bill and reauthorized by the 2018 Farm Bill, these safety-net programs have paid out more than $34.9 billion to producers of covered commodities.

Crop Insurance Considerations

ARC and PLC are part of a broader safety net provided by USDA, which also includes crop insurance and marketing assistance loans.

Producers are reminded that ARC and PLC elections and enrollments can impact eligibility for some crop insurance products.

Producers on farms with a PLC election have the option of purchasing Supplemental Coverage Option (SCO) through their Approved Insurance Provider; however, producers on farms where ARC is the election are ineligible for SCO on their planted acres for that crop on that farm.

Unlike SCO, the Enhanced Coverage Option (ECO) is unaffected by an ARC election. Producers may add ECO regardless of the farm program election.

Upland cotton farmers who choose to enroll seed cotton base acres in ARC or PLC are ineligible for the stacked income protection plan (STAX) on their planted cotton acres for that farm.

For more information on ARC and PLC, visit the ARC and PLC webpage or contact your local USDA Service Center

New NRCS Website

We’re excited to unveil our new website, which was designed for you, whether you’re a farmer, rancher, or forest landowner who uses Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) conservation programs or one of our partners who helps us deliver on the conservation mission.

The new NRCS site has been designed to support and enhance our mission by delivering relevant, timely, customer-focused information in an easy-to-navigate platform.

Key features include:

It’s been designed using the U.S. Web Design System, so you’ll see a certain “family resemblance” among USDA and other federal websites, including farmers.gov.
It’s accessible (or 508 conformant), meaning the site is designed for use by people with disabilities.
It’s mobile responsive, meaning that it should work on a phone or tablet at easily as on a desktop computer.
Be sure to check out our:

Guides and Instructions- Search by resource type, NRCS program, natural resource concern, and state.
Getting Assistance- Learn more about available technical and financial assistance and how you can get support online as well as with the NRCS at your local Service Center.
Conservation by State- Find information on NRCS programs, services, and other information in your state.

Perennial flower bulbs: plant once to enjoy for years to come
Flower bulbs that you will enjoy year after year. It may sound too good to be true but it really isn't. Why not plant perennial flower bulbs in your garden to see for yourself?

The growth cycle of perennials
Flower bulbs that bloom every year are called perennial flower bulbs. After they bloom, these flower bulbs should remain undisturbed in the ground so that their foliage (stem and leaves) is given the time to wither back and the bulbs under the ground can prepare for the next growing season. In other words, they follow the same growth cycle as perennials. Some even increase their numbers because the bulbs multiply underground. How fun is that?

Bulb varieties
There is so much choice in perennial flower bulbs, like cheerful Balkan anemones (Anemone blanda), frivolous glory-of-the-snow (Chionodoxa), fun bluebells (Hyacinths), and richly flowering striped squill (Puschkinia). Perennial flower bulbs that multiply include serene snowdrops (Galanthus), colorful daffodils (Narcissus), blue-colored squills (Scilla), and fragrant spring snowflakes (Leucojum vernum).

Planting
Plant perennial bulbs in the fall if you want to enjoy them in spring. Be sure to do this before the first frost. Give them a place among other perennials on the border, in planting boxes, in your lawn, between ground covers, and under deciduous shrubs and hedges. If you plant them in the grass, wait until the foliage turns yellow before mowing. The bulbs draw nutrition from the leaves to prepare for the next year.

JOY OF WORKING WITH NATURE TO PRODUCE NEW PLANTS
By Willie Edmiston, Hydrangea Propagator

PLANTING WITH SEED IS A WAY TO FILL YOUR GARDEN INEXPENSIVELY AND WITH DIVERSE AND QUALITY PLANTS.
TODAY I WILL BE TALKING MOSTLY ABOUT THE OAKLEAF HYDRANGEA, THE ALABAMA STATE WILDFLOWER.
WE WILL GO THROUGH A SIMPLE STEP BY STEP PROCEDURE FROM A TINY SEED TO A TWO TO THREE YEAR OLD PIANT.
YOU WILL NEED TO COLLECT THE SEED IN THE FALL. OCTOBER OR NOVEMBER. NO LATER THAN THANKSGIVING.
SELECT A HEALTHY OAKLEAF HYDRANGEA WITH FULLY DEVELOPED SEED (USUALLY ABOUT DEADHEADING TIME).
CLIP SEED HEAD WITH CLEAN HAND SHEARS AND PLACE IN A STORAGE OF FREEZER BAG. BE SURE THEY ARE DRY. PLACE
AN ID LABEL AND STORE IN A COOL DRY PLACE. MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR MARCH 1 NEXTYEAR.
MOVING FORWARD. FIRST TWO WEEKS OF MARCH. PREPARE SEED BY CRUSHING THE SEED HEADS WITH YOUR HANDS AND
REMOVE THE CHAFF. IT MAY BE POSSIVE TO JUST SHAKE THE SEED FREE- ABOUT A TABLESPOON OF T]NY SEED. THESE SEED
HAVE EVERYTHING INSIDE NEED TO START A NEW PLANT..
NOW PREPARE A TRAY AND FILL WITH SOIL GARDEN SOIL YOU BUY OR YOUR OWN MIXTURE. ADD WATER UNTUL JUST MOIST
BUT NOT SOGGY. SINCE THE SEED ARE SO SMALL, YOU CAN PLACE THEM IN A SALT SHAKER WITH SUGAR OF SWEETNER
(ALDRIDGE STYLE) AND SPRINKLE THEM ON THE SOIL THEN COVER THEM VERY LIGHTLY BY HAND WITI.I ADDITIONAL SOIL
MlsT wtTH WATER. DO NOT OVERWATER. PLACE YOUR TRAY(S) tN A SHADY PROTECTED AREA. LABEL WITH A DATE AND BE
PATIENT, CHECK REGULARLY FOR MOISTURE AND CHIPMUNKS.

EIGHT TO TEN WEEKS LATER +/. YOU SHOULD SEE TINY GREEN APPEAR ,( PROBABLY TOO THTCK) TH|S WILL BE NEW PLANTS
AND THEY WILL GROW FAST . FUN REALLY BEGINS NOW. IN WEEKS PLANTS WILL BE CROWDED AND SHOULD BE TRANSPLANTED
INTO CONTAINERS WITH PREMOISTENED SOIL WATERED AND WATCH GROW PREFERRED 5OI5O SHADE.
DO NOT OVERWATER
TO PREVENT DAI\4PENING OFF, A FUNGAL DISEASE.
THREE IUONTHS FROM PLANTING PLACE IN ONE GALLON CONTAINERS AND WATER WITH LIGHT MIXTURE OF LIQUID FERTILIZER.
AS PLANTS GROW, PINCH BACK BUD TIPS TO PROMOTE THICK GROWTH AND HEALTHY ,STRONGER PLANT. BY OCTOBER PLANT
in ground or move to 2-3 gallons containers. BY NEXT JUNEIJULY YOU SHOULD HAVE SOME PLANTS WITH BLOOMS.
NOW ENJOY THE THRILL OF WORKING WITH NATURE AND STARTING NEW
PLANTS. EVERY PLANT WILL BE A NEW ONE AND WHO
KNOWS, YOU Might HAVE A CHANCE SEEDLING like a snowflake.

The fabulous fava bean (aka broad bean or fava) is a frost-hardy crop that can be sown in the early spring or planted in the fall and overwintered. Discover this delicious, nutritious plump bean!

Though part of the pea and bean family Fabaceae, fava beans are not like common green beans, Phaseolus vulgaris. They are a member of the vetch genus which is a widely cultivated annual legume grown for its nutritious seeds and pods. They are also grown as a cover crop, keeping the soil covered over winter, which will keep soil life happier; they make efficient use of otherwise empty beds.

Fava beans require cool weather; temperatures in the 60s (Fahrenheit) are ideal. They are stiffly erect plant that grows 2 to 6 feet tall. A staple crop in many countries, and one of the first beans to have been cultivated (as far back as the Bronze Age), fava beans’ pods, beans, shoots, leaves, and flowers are edible. They are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, with exceptional levels of protein, and plenty of potassium that’ll help reduce blood pressure and are good for your heart!

They also grow sweetly fragrant white flowers which are truly gorgeous and worth growing on their own; many pollinators including bumblebees and native bees are attracted to the blooms. Choose a sunny, sheltered spot for your beans in soil that is well-drained and fertile (fork in compost just over an inch deep). Fava beans are also tolerant of clay and saline soils and, once established, drought.

If you’re sowing fava beans in autumn to overwinter, pick a variety described as “hardy” or specifically suited to autumn sowing.
