Payments for the Quality Loss Adjustment program are based on formulas for each crop and the loss documentation that farmers submit. Calculations are made based on a producer’s individual loss or on the county average loss. There are also payment limits for the program. “We are using the same limitation rules as we use for ARC and PLC and other disaster programs,” said Steve Peterson, associate administrator, FSA. “The payment limitation is $125,000 per year. If a farmer suffers a loss in 2018 and 2019, they could receive up to that amount, not to exceed $250,000 through the entire program.” All farmers receiving QLA payments must purchase crop insurance or NAP coverage for the next two available crop years.
