Farm Program and Crop Insurance Decisions for 2021
December 8, 2020 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CST
The election and enrollment period for the ARC and PLC programs for the 2021 crop year is now open, and decisions must be made by March 15th. A new crop insurance program, the Enhanced Coverage Option (ECO), will also be available for crops produced throughout the Midwest. ECO is a county-based program, similar to the Supplemental Coverage Option (SCO) that can be used to supplement underlying multi-peril coverage for eligible crops. This session will address these decisions, and provide some examples and recommendations for typical Illinois farm situations.
