USDA Reminds Farmers to File Crop Acreage Reports
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/24/2022

Farmers who have not yet completed their crop acreage reports after planting should make an appointment with their local Farm Service Agency before the applicable deadline. July 15 is a major deadline for most crops, but acreage reporting deadlines vary by county and by crop. Farmers should make an appointment as soon as possible to avoid missing earlier deadlines.

To be eligible for many FSA programs, including disaster assistance, farmers need an acreage report on file. Continuous acreage reporting provides an opportunity to substantially streamline producers’ applications for assistance. With protracted drought conditions across the Great Plains and Western United States, producers who had previously filed a continuous acreage report benefited from a streamlined application process for disaster programs like the Livestock Forage Disaster Program.

An acreage report documents a crop grown on a farm or ranch and its intended uses. Filing an accurate and timely acreage report for all crops and land uses, including failed acreage and prevented planted acreage, can prevent the loss of program benefits.
