Any changes in your operation for the 2018 crop year?
All producers must be in compliance with FSA in order to receive subsidy on their crop insurance for the 2018
crop year. A certificate of compliance (Form AD-1026) was to be on file at FSA by June 1, 2017.
The form AD-1026 compliance form is continuous and does not need to be refiled unless changes are made to
your farming operation such as:
• Changes in farms owned and/or operated,
• Formation of a new legal entity,
• Changes in farming practices.
Check with your FSA office to make sure you’re in compliance with all farms you own and lease. If you’re not
in compliance, please visit with your agent regarding how the loss of the subsidy will affect your 2018 MPCI crop
insurance prior to the applicable sales closing date.
