Clarification of Stacked Income Protection Plan (STAX) Insurable Acres

RMA Informational Memorandum: OA-21-002

RMA is clarifying the insurability of seed cotton base acres under STAX when the same acreage has been enrolled in ARC or PLC. Producers will be held to the enrollment selection they made at FSA as of March 15, regardless of whether they later withdraw from ARC or PLC. FSA will provide RMA with ARC and PLC cotton enrollment data soon after March 15, which will also be provided to AIPs, as applicable, to process STAX policies. Seed cotton base acres that have enrolled in ARC or PLC will be uninsurable for STAX purposes.
