PART B –PRODUCER CERTIFICATION STATEMENT AND SIGNATURES

By signing below I certify to all of the following
In general:
(1) I am the owner or operator of the land being offered; (2) to the best of my knowledge and belief the acreage of annual and/or perennial crops,
including woody perennial crops and land listed on this form are true and complete; (3) I agree to grow eligible crops on the enrolled acreage; (4) I
understand that establishing eligible crops suitable for biomass production does not ensure that a biomass conversion facility (BCF) will purchase the
harvested product; and (5) that CCC is not liable if the BCF with whom I have arranged to sell my eligible crops changes the terms and conditions of the
purchase of such biomass products produced on land under contract.
Environmental Compliance
(6) I will fully comply with all of the terms and conditions of the BCAP conservation, forest stewardship, or equivalent plan; (7) I am in compliance with
the highly erodible land conservation requirements of subtitle B of title XII of the Food Security Act of 1985 (16 U.S.C. 3811 et seq.) and the wetland
conservation requirements of subtitle C of title XII of that Act; (8) the land that I am offering is not Federal or State owned, is physically located in an
approved BCAP project area, and is not native sod (described in the program regulations and generally native sod is native grass or vegetation never
tilled before June 18, 2008; and (9) the land that I am offering is not enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program, Wetlands Reserve Program,
Grassland Reserve Program, or subject to restrictions such as easements or conveyances that conflict with the production of energy crops as contemplated
by this form.
Sale Notification and Costs
(10) I will notify CCC within 14 calendar days after the sale of biomass from land enrolled in the program; (11) I understand the estimated cost of
establishing the eligible crops offered; and (12) I understand that I may be required to pay for a measurement service on the acreage offered before such
acreage may be enrolled in the BCAP.
Inspection and Information Sharing
(13) The signing of this form gives USDA representatives authorization to enter and inspect crops and land uses and for other purposes on the above
identified land, and (14) I agree to make available to the Secretary, or to an institution of higher education or other entity as designated by the Secretary,
such information the Secretary considers to be appropriate to promote the production of eligible crops and the development of biomass conversion
technology and otherwise further the purposes of the BCAP.
(15) I understand that any inaccuracies in this certification could result in a payment reduction or loss of program benefits, and that the remedies provided
for in program authorities may be in addition to any liability which may be incurred under various criminal and civil fraud statutes, including, but not
limited to, 18 U.S.C. 1001 and 15 U.S.C. 714m; (16) I understand that the acceptance of this form by the CCC is not an acceptance into the BCAP
program or an authorization of payments and that estimates may be corrected at any time.

NOTE:

The following statement is made in accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 USC 552a - as amended). The authority for requesting the

designated project area) request for contract acreage and establishment and annual payments under the Biomass Crop Assistance Program. The
information collected on this form may be disclosed to other Federal, State, Local government agencies, Tribal agencies, and nongovernmental
entities that have been authorized access to the information by statute or regulation and/or as described in applicable Routine Uses identified in
the System of Records Notice for USDA/FSA-2, Farm Records File (Automated). Providing the requested information is voluntary. However,
failure to furnish the requested information will result in an inability on the part of CCC to review a producer’
s (must be located within a designated
project area) request for contract acreage and establishment and annual payments under the Biomass Crop Assistance Program.
According to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection
of information unless it displays a valid OMB control number. The valid OMB control number for this information collection is 0560-0082. The time
