Farmers have until June 3, 2013 to sign up for the ACRE program and August 2, 2013 for the DCP program. Under the earlier rules of the 2008 Farm Bill, farmers who signed up for ACRE had to remain in ACRE through 2012. The exten- sion changes that require- ment. Even if farmers signed up for ACRE before, the extension allows them to change their choice and sign up for DCP if they think that is a better choice for them in 2013. (Farmers are not required to sign up for either program, but par- ticipation makes sense for 2013 in almost all cases.) The 2013 decision to sign up for ACRE involves some uncertainty because the drought of 2012 has cast doubt on the potential yields for 2013 and thus the poten- tial market prices. Also, changes in the demand side for grains may have weak- ened the market's ability to absorb higher production at current price levels. At this point in early May, the decision seems to tilt toward the sign up for the DCP in 2013. Prices for the 2013 crop are still strong in the futures markets. And so far yields are not expect- ed to drop drastically due to late planting. As we learn more about the planting season and poten- tial production levels and price movements, this situa- tion may change. So farm- ers need to pay attention to these changes and make their final choice between ACRE and DCP closer to the deadline of June 3. Due to this uncertainty and their individual situa- tions, every farmer needs to evaluate his or her own con- ditions and payment limits and decide whether the ACRE or DCP program is the best option for their farm in 2013. Farmers and their advisers can use a worksheet pro- vided by University of Minnesota Extension ( to help them evaluate their sit- uation for the 2013 deci- sion.
