FSA Acreage Reporting Deadlines Approaching Soon
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 07/06/2017

The acting director of the Wisconsin Farm Service Agency says producers who file accurate and timely reports for all crops and land uses can prevent the potential loss of FSA program benefits. In a press release on Wednesday, Russ Raeder pointed out several important deadlines for farmers and landowners to keep in mind during the month of July.

"In order to comply with FSA program eligibility requirements, all producers are encouraged to visit their local county FSA office to file an accurate crop certification report by the applicable deadline," said Raeder.

July 17 is the final day to report all spring-seeded crops, including soybeans, forage seeding, crops intended for cover, green manure, or left standing, and Conservation Reserve Program acres. Crop insurance agents and FSA will be working with the Acreage and Crop Reporting Streamlining Initiative.

"At this time, producers must sign all acreage reports at a local Farm Service Agency office to meet the FSA program requirements," Raeder noted. "Producers may also have to sign forms with their Crop Insurance Agent. Producers are encouraged to contact their Farm Service Agency office AND their Crop Insurance agent to ensure all required forms are completed to maintain eligibility for all programs."

Exceptions may apply if the crop has not been planted by the acreage reporting date or if a producer acquires additional acreage after the deadline.

Policy holders for the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program should note that the acreage reporting date for NAP-covered crops is the earlier of the dates listed above or 15 calendar days before grazing or harvesting of the crop begins.
