Website helps farmers applying for the USDA Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) programs.

The ARC and PLC programs were authorized by the 2014 and 2018 Farm Bills and are administered under the USDA Farm Service Program; they provide financial protections to farmers from substantial drops in crop prices or revenues and are vital economic safety nets for most American farms. Mitchell’s website, Resources for Making ARC and PLC Decisions for 2021, offers comprehensive written and video material, and includes an overview of the programs, a payment simulator, and links to other resources to assist farmers on selecting the best options in applying for these programs. The site experienced heavy traffic during the enrollment period. In February, Mitchell was also featured in a series of interviews with Larry Lee of the Brownfield Ag News, discussing Mitchell’s advice about the programs.
