COVID-19 UPDATE - The USDA Service Center received instructions last week that all customers visiting any Service Center will be required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status.  

OCTOBER PAYMENTS

The 2020 ARCPLC payments were issued last week and should be in producer's bank accounts or the check is in the mail.  Remember, if the payment was assigned to a financial institution, the producer will only receive the transaction statement. 

The 2021 CRP annual rental payments will begin processing this week and should be in the accounts no later than October 22nd.  

DIRECT DEPOSIT LETTERS

The office mailed producers without direct deposits on file a letter explaining that producers should enroll in direct deposit with your financial institution.  It's a simple process to enroll into direct deposit - complete a form and have either your financial institution complete the routing and account information or give the office a voided check.  

NRCS FIELD VISITS

Producers who have accepted offers into the CRP Grasslands program can expect to see NRCS employees conducting field visits over the next few months.  NRCS has a deadline of December 17, 2021 to complete a final Conservation plan for the accepted offers.
