Don't overlook ACRE for 2009: The deadline is Aug. 14 By Paul Gorman, Instructor, Minn. W. Comm. Coll., Mankato The deadline for signing up for the Average Crop Revenue Elec- tion (ACRE) for the 2009 crop year has been extended to Aug. 14. ACRE is the best kept secret for south- ern Minnesota farmers. I have not had a single conversation or meet- ing with a producer who has really studied the program and worked the numbers. The recent drop in corn prices may make ACRE a via- ble option for some producers. There are many reasons why ACRE has been ignored by crop pro- ducers. Farmers need good finan- cial incentives to accept the 20 per- cent reduction in direct crop pay- ments and the 30 percent reduc, tion in marketing assistance loan rates required by ACRE. Because southern Minnesota yields are high, there is a perception that the reduced state yield trigger makes the program unattractive to south- ern Minnesota producers. Many people assume that corn and soy- bean prices for the 2009 crop mar- keting year will be at high enough levels that ACRE will not be needed. There have been many delays in interpretation and implementa- tion of the regulations for ACRE, and when they delayed the sign- up deadline from June to Aug. 14, many people assumed that the election may receive another dead- line postponement.. The compelling reason to look at ACRE for 2009 is the $1.30 drop in corn prices since the June 30 report with three million more corn acres. Remember that the 2009 crop mar- keting year calculations are based upon monthly national aver- age prices from September 2009 through August 2010. If you think the average corn price (national before basis reduc- tion) in the year ahead could be in the low $3's or high $2's; ACRE could pay 6-digit returns over the old DCP/CCP program. We need to do the calculations. Producers should review the spreadsheet developed by Kent Olson at the University of Minne- sota. I encourage you to put your numbers in his ACRE calculator and compare results. Try differ- ent national prices over the next four years. You can find the work- sheet at .
