Loan Deficiency Payments (LDPs)
The loan deficiency payment (LDP) program is an excellent tool for marketing grain when conditions are most favorable.
When producers enter the program, they can choose to receive a loan against their crop, or if prices are low, they can choose to be paid an LDP instead of taking out a loan.
LDP rates change daily and are determined for each county and crop according to loan rates and calculated posted county prices.
