2015 Estimated ARC-CO Payments08/22/2016
Payments for the 2015 Agricultural Risk Coverage at the county level (ARC-CO) program will provide much needed funds for many farmers with short cash flows. These payments will be made after October 1st. At this point, not all data needed to calculate ARC-CO payments are available; however, reasonable estimates of payments can be made for those counties in which the National Agricultural Statistical Service (NASS) provides county yields. Maps showing corn and soybean level of payments across the United States are given in this article, thereby updating 2015 ARC-CO estimates from a May 27th farmdoc daily article (farmdoc daily May 27, 2016) using more up-to-date estimates of market year average prices.
