Crop Reporting Deadline July 15

The annual, timely and accurate reporting of acres for all crops and land uses, including failed acreage, can prevent loss of benefits for a variety of Farm Service Agency programs. All cropland on the farm must be reported to receive benefits from the Direct and Counter-cyclical Program, ACRE payments and marketing assistance loans.

Conservation Reserve Program acreage must be reported to receive annual rental payments. And, crop acreage for Non-insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) must also be reported.

Crop reports, form FSA-578, Report of Acreage, must account for all cropland on a farm, whether idle or planted. Producers need to file their acreage reports by Friday July 15, 2011 for all crops. Late file fees will be assessed after July 15, 2011.

Prevented Planting:

Prevented planting needs be reported by July 15, 2011. The deadline has been extended this year due to weather.

Failed Acreage:

Reports of failed acreage must be filed before disposition of the crop, and producers must be able to establish to the satisfaction of the county committee that the crop failed and was prevented from being replanted through the normal planting period because of natural disaster conditions.

Hispanic and Women

Farmers

USDA is making every effort to inform all Hispanic and Women farmers of the upcoming claims process available to Hispanic and Women farmers who believe they were discriminated against when seeking the US Department farm loans. One of the ways we will disseminate information is by weekly meetings held at the Fillmore County FSA office each Thursday at 9:00am. Anyone interested is invited to attend one of these meetings. If you have any questions please call 507-765-3892. Information is also available by calling 1-888-508-4429 or online at www.farmersclaims.gov.
