Pandemic Cover Crop Program (PCCP)

File Acreage Report by June 15 to Receive Premium Benefit for Cover Crops

Did you plant a cover crop and also have crop insurance coverage for your spring crops this year? If so, you may be eligible for a premium benefit through the new Pandemic Cover Crop Program. To receive this benefit, you must file a Report of Acreage (FSA578) by June 15, 2021.

We recognize cover crops require a sustained, long-term investment, and the economic challenges of the pandemic made it financially challenging for many producers to maintain cover crop systems. PCCP is part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s financial assistance to help producers who felt the impact of COVID-19 market disruptions. This program helps ensure producers, including those here in Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee can continue this important conservation practice.
