FSA Prepares to Issue CRP and DCP Payments
(Roanoke, VA) – October 5, 2012 – Botetourt/Craig/Roanoke County USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director, C. Jean Hazlegrove, announced that FSA will 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 Hazlegrove.
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.
