Ag site helps explain ACRE

The National Corn Growers Association has developed a bulletin for landowners on the farm bill’s ACRE (Average Crop Revenue Election) program. But Art Barnaby, a Kansas State University agricultural economist, says the paper is also a helpful resource for wheat growers.

Barnaby stressed it’s important for producers to stay on top of ACRE information, particularly with the USDA’s statistic service releasing its first yield estimate Aug. 12.

“The Aug. 12. . .report could be a game changer in some states,” Barnaby said. “I think the (corn) association’s bulletin explains most of the landlord issues.”
