|FSA announces CRP and DCP payments|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) state executive director Trudy Kareus announced FSA would issue Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) and Direct and Counter-cyclical Program (DCP) payments during the first few weeks of October.
“FSA will issue the payments timely as long as all producer eligibility requirements are met,” said Kareus.
CRP and DCP payments could be affected if producers have not submitted the required Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) forms. Affected producers will need to submit the proper AGI forms before payments can be issued. In addition, producers who signed up for CRP emergency haying and grazing and did not pay in advance will notice that their annual rental payment was reduced by the acreage that was hayed or grazed.
“Producers who were affected by county office consolidations will not experience payment delays of this nature,” said Kareus. “All county office payments, regardless of consolidations, will be generated at the same time as long as all other eligibility requirements are met,” she said.
