Estimating 2016 ARC and PLC Payments For Covered Commodities

Posted on by

ARC and PLC payments, if any, are not received until October of the following year after harvest.  This is because the price component of ARC and PLC is based on the marketing year for the crop and that is not known until the end of the marketing year.  Also, yield data used for ARC are not released by FSA until August or September in the year following harvest.
