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.

Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC) & Price Loss Coverage (PLC)
First Sign Up Deadline is Feb. 27th
Now is the time to evaluate your options and decide.
Now through Feb. 27, 2015, farm owners with base and planting history between 2009 and 2012 have a one-time opportunity to:
- Maintain the farm’s base acres through 2018
- Reallocate base acres among covered commodities planted on the farm at any time during 2009—2012 crop years (excluding upland cotton bases).
*Note: Total current base on farm cannot increase or decrease.
Owners will also have the one-time opportunity to update their yields. This is the first time that many producers have been able to update yields since 1986. The updated yields will be calculated using 90 percent of the simple average of the 2008-2012 yields. This yield update is a certification process, therefore, FSA will not accept evidence of these yields. However, certified yields are always subject to spot check.
Producers should study their options before updating yields or reallocating base acres. To help in this process, web tools can be found at www.fsa.usda.gov/arc-plc
