USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) reminds farm owners of the September 30 deadline to update Price Loss Coverage (PLC) program yields for covered commodities. This is a one-time opportunity for producers to update yields, which are used to calculate 2020 through 2023 payments.
Updating yields requires the signature of one owner on a farm and not all owners. If a yield update is not made, no action is required to maintain the existing base crop yield on file with FSA.
For program payments, updated yields will apply beginning with the 2020 crop year which, should payments trigger, will be paid in October 2021.
In order to update PLC yields, average yields per planted acre in crop years 2013-2017 will be needed.
