Ah, the joys of paperwork. If  you elected either the Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC) or Price Loss Coverage (PLC) programs under the farm bill, you have a deadline coming up. 

Monday, Aug. 1 is the last day to enroll in these safety net programs for the 2016 crop year, according to USDA's Farm Service Agency. FSA says it expects more than 1.76 million farmers and ranchers to participate in the program.

ARC/PLC provides financial protections for farmers when crop prices or revenues sink; it covers a variety of commodity crops, including corn, soybeans, what, rice, canola, peanuts, sorghum and more.
