FSA fall crop reporting deadline is Nov. 15


Producers of perennial forage and fall-seeded small grains must submit their 2016 acreage report for those crops to their county Farm Service Agency and to their crop insurance agent by Nov. 15, 2015 according to Robert J. Nagel, Kimball County Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director.

Crop acreage reports are essential to maintaining eligibility for multiple FSA program benefits and establishing a record of historically cropping. “Timely acreage reporting not only maintains a producer’s eligibility for traditional conservation, price support and production program benefits, but is also a requirement for critical disaster assistance,” said Nagel.

Producers are reminded of the importance to accurately report the crop, crop acreage, intended use, irrigation practice, planting dates and producer shares. Prevented planted acres must be reported within 15 days of the final planting date. Failed acres must be reported to FSA within 15 days of when the loss becomes apparent for non-insurable crops, or otherwise prior to disposition of the crop.

For more information on acreage reporting requirements or to schedule an acreage certification appointment contact your local FSA Office.
