“Producers must file their reports accurately and timely for all crops and land uses, including prevented and failed acreage, to ensure they receive the maximum FSA program benefits possible,” Pruski said.
Acreage reports are considered timely filed when completed by the applicable final crop reporting deadline, which may vary from state to state. Prevented acreage must be reported within 15 calendar days after the final planting date. Failed acreage must be reported before the disposition of the crop. Producers should contact their county FSA office if they are uncertain about reporting deadlines.
Late-filed provisions may be available to producers who are unable to meet the reporting deadline as required. Reports filed after the established deadline must meet certain requirements to be accepted and may be charged late fees.
Producers should visit their county FSA office to complete acreage reporting. More information on FSA programs is at: “http://click.icptrack.com/icp/relay.php?r=50481974&msgid=214375&act=YNN3&c=590864&destination=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fsa.usda.gov%2F.
