Local Highlights

January 29, 2021

Iowa producers have until March 15, 2021 to make their annual election for Price Loss Coverage or Agriculture Risk Coverage (at the individual or county levels) under the 2018 Farm Bill.  This annual decision impacts the 2021 crop year, consistent with the 2018 Farm Bill. Similar annual decisions, for the 2022 and 2023 crops, will coincide with the final two years of the bill.  In order to help Iowans understand their options for 2021, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will hold in-person meetings throughout Northwest Iowa in February through early-March, as well as offer virtual webinars for those who cannot attend in person.
