Farmers can apply for an advance throughout the program year, with new program years beginning on April 1 of each year. The last day to to transfer a Pre-Production Advance to a Post-Harvest Advance is Dec. 31.
Post-harvest crop advances are secured by the unsold stored crop and can be applied for at any time of the year.
