The time to decide on whether to sign up for Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) program for the 2009 crop is quite soon, and many farmers are undecided, says Stu Ellis, editor of The farm gate blog.

“If the reason for the indecision is insufficient information, there are numerous resources, many of them recommending that farmers enroll in ACRE for 2009, because of the greater potential for financial benefit, compared to the conventional program,” he says.

The deadline for ACRE enrollment is Aug. 14.
