2012 DCP Signup

Enrollment for the 2012 Direct and Counter-cyclical Program (DCP) will begin on January 23, 2012, and will continue through June 1, 2012. This is different from past years when we started signup on October 1. Producers can make use of the eDCP automated website to sign up, or they can visit the FSA office to complete their 2012 DCP contract.

Eligible producers receive direct payments at rates established by statute regardless of market prices.

FSA Is Moving To

Electronic Information

The USDA Farm Service Agency offices are moving toward a "paperless" operation, according to Tammy Martin, County Executive Director for Fillmore County FSA Office.

Minnesota FSA offices are moving away from mailing monthly newsletters, reminder cards or other general information. However, County Committee ballots will continue to be mailed to all eligible producers.

Producers are asked to give us their email addresses for the new GovDelivery system which will provide notices, newsletters and reminders through electronic means. Also providing the local FSA office with the producers email will assist in a smooth transition to the new system.

Martin said, "FSA, like many other organizations, is trying to work smarter and be more efficient. Moving to electronic notifications will help us conserve resources yet be in communication with our producers."
