Crop ins , sco and plc, arc

Ok , do I want to go ARC or PLC or PLC with SCO. Most everyone is talking PLC for 2019-20. Why that over ARC?

PLC is connected to price, ARC is connected to production. The current trend has been low prices and high production; therefore, PLC pays and ARC doesn't.

Apparently, you can elect for two years at first and after than one year at a time.


Heard a presentation (rules haven't been developed by USDA yet) that indicated ARC didn't pay in most of Iowa and PLC did a little.


Land Grant universiites will have more soon.  University of Illinois is usually very good in my experience.
