On Oct. 20, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that approximately 255 million base acres on about 1.7 million farms were enrolled in the Direct and Counter-cyclical Program (DCP) and in the Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) program. USDA will issue nearly $4 billion in 2009 final direct payments to eligible producers on approved contracts. Producers have already received advance payments of approximately $900 million. Producers who signed up their farm under DCP are eligible for direct payments, counter-cyclical payments and marketing assistance commodity loans.
