Our primary mission at FSA is to help Missouri farmers and ranchers secure the greatest possible benefit from programs such as farm loans, commodity price support, disaster relief, conservation, food aid or other available resources.
FSA employees are dedicated to improving the economic stability of Missouri agriculture one family at a time, and insuring that rural Missouri remains a great place to raise the next generation of Missourians.
The hard working men and women of Missouri’s FSA county offices are at the forefront of our efforts and remain the primary contact for program participation. We encourage you to speak with the staff at your local office on how we can be of service. Our user friendly web site can help you learn more about FSA programs and services and help you locate your local FSA Service Center.

Is ACRE the Option for You?
ACRE Enrollment Deadline is June 3rd!
The Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) program was first introduced with the passage of the 2008 Farm Bill. The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 extended both the ACRE program and the Direct and Counter-cyclical program (DCP) through 2013. This extension allows producers to choose to enroll in either DCP or ACRE for the 2013 crop year. This means even if you weren’t previously enrolled in ACRE you now have the opportunity to be in the program for 2013. Likewise, if you were previously enrolled in ACRE throughout the 2008 Farm Bill, you can now choose to enroll in DCP.
Unsure if ACRE is the right option for you? ACRE is a revenue-based safety net as opposed to the price-based safety net provided by counter-cyclical payments. The tools below provide additional information about the ACRE program. Consider ACRE as an option for your operation this crop year.
