The rea- son is the increase in corn, soybean and wheat prices, says Gary Hachfeld, regional educator with the U of M Extension Service. The CCP advance for corn was $0.077 per bushel: for wheat it was $0.031. Prices were high enough for soybeans that there was no advanced CCP made. "Producers will be receiving or may have already received a letter from the Farm Service Agency (FSA) alert- ing them to the repayment issue," Hachfeld says. The refund policy offers two options for repayment. Option 1 allows producers to essentially do nothing, and the repayment will be sub- tracted from their 2004 final Direct Payment (DP) and/or the 2005 crop DP to be made in fall 2004. The producer will not have to write a check to the Commodity Credit Crop (CCC) and there will be no interest charge on the repayment amount. A repay- ment statement will be issued showing the producer has satisfied the obligation. Option I is the default option and the producer does not need to take any action for the repayment to be made automatically. Under Option 1, the p .r.m- ducer will have more than enough DP funds to cover the cost of the CCP payment. The total DP for cornist per bushel: and total DP amount is bushel. The 2004 payment is half that, advance DP for half that amount. the DP amount is the CCP advances need to be refunded to To calculate the amount, multiply DP/CCP contract the DP/CCP yield times the CCP amount.
