Decision Aid for Farm Bill

Posted by romeethredge on February 12, 2015

There is a pretty good Farm Bill Decision Aid for help making decisions concerning the farm bill, from Texas A&M University.

Data needed to use the decision aids:
1. FSA-156EZ form: farm number, base acres as of Sept. 2013 (excluding cotton “generic” base), CC yields, and planted acres

2. Approved APH production & Yield Report: provided by RMA/Crop Insurance Agent; rate (actual) yield, APH yield, and actual planted acres for up to ten years (2003-2013).
Note: Only planting history and yields for 2008-2012 are used in determining base reallocation.

You’ll need your planned future crop acres, 2014 to 2018.
