Farm Service Agency (FSA) administered programs

Direct and Countercyclical Program (DCP)

The maps in this category allow users to view 2009 program year levels of Direct Payments (DP) and Countercyclical Payments (CCP) associated with enrolled base acres, as well as the number of enrolled base acres in a county. These data are displayed as totals (including all eligible crops) and separately for five key commodities: corn, soybeans, wheat, upland cotton, and rice. Additionally, viewers can explore the total enrolled acreage for these programs as a share of all cropland acres (an indicator of how much cropland in a county benefitted from the DCP program) as well as the key commodity enrolled acreage as a share of planted acres for those crops on farms participating in FSA farm programs (an indicator of how much acreage planted by FSA program participants was planted to historically produced crops-a share higher or lower than 1 indicates 2009 acres planted to a crop differed from historical base production).

Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) Program

The maps in this category allow users to view the number of base acres enrolled in the ACRE program, the levels of ACRE payments associated with those base acres, and the share of those ACRE base acres of total DCP and ACRE enrolled base acres in a county for program year 2009. The payment and enrolled base acre data are displayed as totals (including all eligible crops) and separately for five key commodities: corn, soybeans, wheat, upland cotton, and rice. Additionally, viewers can explore the total program acreage as a share of cropland acres (an indicator of how much cropland in a county benefitted from the ACRE program) as well as the key commodity enrolled acreage as a share of planted acres for those crops on farms participating in FSA farm programs (an indicator of how much acreage planted by FSA program participants was planted to historically produced crops-a share higher or lower than 1 indicates that 2009 acres planted to a crop differed from historical base production).

Marketing Assistance Loan Program

The maps in this category allow users to view 2009 program year marketing loan benefits (MLB) (including marketing loan gains, loan deficiency payments, and certificate exchange gains) and the value of loans made on production in a county through the Marketing Assistance Loan Program. Both benefits and value of loans made are displayed as totals (including all eligible crops) and value of loans made data are also displayed for five key commodities: corn, soybeans, wheat, upland cotton, and rice. Additionally, viewers can explore the totals as a share of cropland acres (an indicator of how much cropland in a county benefitted from the marketing assistance loan program) and the key commodity values as a share of planted acres for those crops on farms participating in FSA farm programs (an indicator of the extent to which producers of these commodities participating in FSA programs took marketing assistance loans on their crops). [Note: Some marketing assistance loans are made through cooperatives; county location data for these loans are not readily available, and they are not included in the Atlas at this time.  As a result, the map may underreport the value of loans made to some counties. Also note that the county location of loans made is the county in which the commodity collateralized under the loan is stored.]

Milk Income Loss Contract (MILC) Program

The maps in this category allow users to view 2009 program year levels of MILC payments associated with dairy farms in a county and in a State. Viewers can also explore the payments as a share of milk production in a State (an indicator of how much milk production in a State has benefitted from the MILC program). [Note: county-level details will display the same State-level production data for all counties in a State.]

Back to top

Conservation Reserve Program (CRP)

The maps in this category allow users to view both 2009 and 2011 program year levels of CRP payments (including rental, cost-share, and incentive payments) and enrolled acres, as well as payments per enrolled acre (an indicator of the relative value of CRP contracts in a county). Viewers can also explore the number of acres for which CRP contracts will expire in 2012 and over the period 2012-2014, as well as the share of 2011 enrolled acres represented by those expiring acres (an indicator of how much currently enrolled CRP land may leave the program within the next 3 years). [Note: not all expiring CRP acres will leave the program, as some will be reenrolled.]

Risk Management Agency (RMA) administered programs

Crop Insurance Program

The maps in this category allow users to view 2009 program year levels in a county of net acres insured, policy premiums, government-paid premium subsidies, and net indemnities to policy holders through the Federal crop insurance program. These data are displayed as totals (including all eligible crops except pasture, rangeland, and forage) and separately for five key commodities: corn, soybeans, wheat, upland cotton, and rice. Additionally, viewers can explore the totals as a share of cropland acres (an indicator of how much cropland in a county benefitted from the crop insurance program) and the key commodity levels as a share of planted acres for those crops on farms participating in FSA farm programs (an indicator of the extent to which producers benefiting from the crop insurance program also participated in FSA farm programs). Viewers can also find data on the share of net acres and premiums associated with revenue-based policies in a county (an indicator of the extent to which producers have taken advantage of opportunities to cover both price and yield risk).

Data Definitions and Sources

Year Definitions:

All years are program years, unless otherwise specified. Program year refers to the year in which commodities covered by a program were produced. Payments, enrollments, and other program participation indicators that affect the commodities produced in a particular year are referred to as belonging to that program year. For the Milk Income Loss Contract (MILC) Program and the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), the program year is the same as the fiscal year. Milk production data used in the map are for the MILC program year, rather than the usual calendar year. Cropland acres used in some of the maps are from the 2007 Census of Agriculture, which reflects calendar year 2007 data.

Farm Program Eligibility:

Eligibility for farm programs depends on several factors. Programs can differ in what commodities are covered, whether payments are based on current production and/or prices, when program payments are triggered, and income limitations for receiving payments. These eligibility differences can affect participation levels in different areas, depending upon what commodities are produced or were historically produced and local conditions that trigger payments. A brief description of these differences appears below. Further details can be found on the ERS Farm & Commodity Policy and Conservation Programs topics.

Direct and Countercyclical Program (DCP): Direct Payments are available to producers with eligible historical production of wheat, corn, grain sorghum, barley, oats, upland cotton, rice, soybeans, other oilseeds, and peanuts and are made annually without reference to current conditions. Countercyclical Payments are available to producers with eligible historical production of wheat, corn, grain sorghum, barley, oats, upland cotton, long- and medium-grain rice, soybeans, other oilseeds, dry peas, lentils, small and large chickpeas, and peanuts. Countercyclical payments are made only when the effective price of a covered commodity falls below its statutory target price.

Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE):ACRE payments are available to producers with eligible historical production of wheat, corn, grain sorghum, barley, oats, upland cotton, rice, soybeans, other oilseeds, dry peas, lentils, small chickpeas, and large chickpeas and peanuts. Participants in the ACRE program receive payments if current market revenue (what the producer receives from selling the harvested crop) falls below both State- and farm-level guarantees based on planted yields and national market prices. Additionally, participants receive reduced Direct Payments on their base acres associated with historical production.

Marketing Assistance Loan Program:Marketing assistance loans and marketing loan benefits are available to producers of wheat, corn, grain sorghum, barley, oats, upland cotton, extra-long staple (ELS) cotton, long-and medium-grain rice, soybeans, other oilseeds, peanuts, wool, mohair, honey, dry peas, lentils, and small and large chickpeas. Marketing assistance loans allow producers to obtain a low-interest loan after harvest for all or part of their production and sell the commodity later to repay the loan. Marketing loan benefits-marketing loan gains, certificate exchange gains (discontinued after 2009), and loan deficiency payments-are available only when the market price for the commodity falls below the applicable loan rate.

Supplemental Revenue Assistance (SURE) Program:SURE payments are based on a whole-farm revenue guarantee covering production of almost all crops on the farm except for some crops not eligible per statute or regulations, such as grazed forage, crops planted after the initial crop, and subsequent crops planted in unapproved double crop areas. Payments are made to eligible producers on farms in disaster counties that incurred crop production or crop-quality losses or both during the crop year.

Milk Income Loss Contract (MILC) Program:MILC payments are available monthly to dairy producers when the price of milk falls below a baseline price adjusted for feed costs. Payments are made on a limited amount of production per operation per year (2.985 million pounds in 2009).

Conservation Reserve Program (CRP):CRP payments (including rental payments, other incentives, and cost-share for implementing conservation practices on land in the program) are made through contracts with agricultural producers and landowners to retire highly erodible and environmentally sensitive cropland and pasture from production for 10-15 years. Enrolled land is planted to grasses, trees, and other cover, thereby reducing erosion and water pollution and providing other environmental benefits. Voluntary offers from landowners to enroll in the program are accepted based on ranking by an environmental benefits index (EBI) that accounts for multiple environmental concerns, including water quality, air quality, and soil erodibility, and by soil-specific rental rates. The amount of land in the program, by county and nationally, is subject to statutory limits.

Crop Insurance Program:Producers of more than 100 specific crops can purchase insurance policies at a subsidized rate, under Federal crop insurance programs. These insurance policies make indemnity payments to producers based on current losses related to either below-average yields (crop yield insurance) or below-average revenue (revenue insurance). Policies are sold through private insurance companies, but USDA's Risk Management Agency (RMA) subsidizes the insurance premiums, as well as a portion of the companies' administrative and operating expenses, and shares underwriting gains and losses with the companies through a reinsurance agreement.

Payment limitations:Individuals may receive up to $40,000 in DPs and $65,000 in CCPs; these limits are adjusted for participants in the ACRE program. The spouse of an operator is automatically eligible to receive up to the same limits. There are no limits on marketing loan benefits. A person or legal entity with average adjusted gross nonfarm income in excess of $500,000 would not be eligible for DPs, CCPs, ACRE payments, MLBs, SURE payments and other disaster assistance, or MILC payments. A person or entity with average adjusted gross farm income that exceeds $750,000 would not be eligible for DPs. Eligibility for other payments would not be affected as long as nonfarm income does not exceed the nonfarm limits. A person or entity with average adjusted gross farm income in excess of $1 million would not be eligible for SURE payments or other disaster assistance, CRP or other conservation programs, or ACRE, unless more than two-thirds of total average adjusted gross income is farm income.
