Program Description

As with other “covered commodities” made eligible for the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) programs established with the 2014 Farm Bill, Seed Cotton (unginned cotton containing both cotton lint and cottonseed) was established as a covered commodity in the 2018 Bipartisan Budget Act, with coverage available for the 2018 crop.  Former cotton lint base acres may be converted to seed cotton base acres and/or other covered commodity crop base acres, and payments may be made on those base acres if certain economic and other conditions are met.  For information on how Other covered commodities enrollment was handled after the 2014 Farm Bill, please see the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) Enrollment Fact Sheet.


The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 Seed Cotton Base Acre Allocation, Yield Update, Election and Enrollment Fact Sheet contains specific information for the newly ARC/PLC eligible Seed Cotton program.  Other ARC/PLC information and data, including program payments, enrollment contracts, program definitions, and Frequently asked Questions can be found on the FSA ARC/PLC Program web page.
