Page 6 November 4, 2010 Some crops meet program rules FARGO - Four North Dakota commodities have met the 2009 state revenue trigger for the Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) Program. The 2009 actual state revenue for barley, oats and dry peas has fallen below the ACRE guarantee, which meets one of two criteria for payments to participating farms. Participants in the program who planted or were prevented from planting barley, oats, corn or dry peas in the 2009 crop year may now be eligible for payments if their actual farm revenue for the 2009 program year falls below the farm ACRE guarantee. The 2009 wheat and soybean crops did not meet the state revenue trigger. The 2009 minor oilseed crop state triggers will be deter- mined in December. The per acre payment rates, before the payment or farm produc- tivity factors are applied are: bar- ley-$19.76/acre; oats-$8.30/acre; dry peas-$6.01/acre; and corn- $26.64/acre. Program participants who grew one or more of the triggered crops and have questions about their farm trigger being met for each of the applicable crops should contact their local Farm Service Agency office for more details.
