Seed Cotton eligible for ARC, PLC programs.

After being largely left out of the 2014 Farm Bill, cotton growers are once again eligible for safety net coverage through Title 1 of the 2018 Farm Bill.

“Under the 2014 Farm Bill, producers made a one-time ARC and PLC election by crop and by farm that remained in effect for the 2014 to 2018 crop years for commodities other than seed cotton,” Dr. Jody Campiche, vice president of Economics and Policy Analysis for the National Cotton Council (NCC), said. “For seed cotton, producers made an ARC/PLC election effective for the 2018 crop year. The ARC/PLC provisions in the 2018 Farm Bill allow producers to make an ARC/PLC election by crop and by farm for the 2019, 2020 and 2021 crop years.”

Starting with the 2021-22 crop year, farmers may choose coverage through the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) or Price Loss Coverage (PLC) programs annually.
