COLUMBUS - USDA Farm Service Agency recently announced an extension of the FSA acreage reporting deadline.
Farmers and landowners have an additional 18 calendar days to submit their annual report of acreage to their local FSA county office with the deadline extended to Aug. 2. Only the FSA reporting deadline has been extended. The acreage reporting requirement for crop insurance has not changed which was July 15.
"We want to ensure our producers maintain their program benefits by filing their reports accurately and in a timely manner for all crops and land uses, including prevented and failed acreage," said FSA Administrator Juan M. Garcia.
Accurate acreage reports are necessary to determine and maintain eligibility for various programs.
Acreage reports for FSA are considered timely this year when filed at the county office by the new applicable final crop deadline. Producers should contact their county FSA office if they are uncertain about reporting deadlines.
While FSA is able to extend its deadline, Risk Management Agency Administrator Brandon Willis emphasized that RMA's acreage reporting date was not extended Farmers are reminded to report any loss within 72 hours of discovery to their insurance company.
Farmers must report prevented planting acreage to their insurance company, in writing, within 15 calendar days after the final planting date.
