U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director Heather Kirkpatrick in Dunn County announces that producers who file accurate and timely reports for all crops and land uses, including failed acreage, can prevent the potential loss of FSA program benefits.
“In order to comply with FSA program eligibility requirements, all producers are encouraged to visit the Dunn County FSA office to file an accurate crop certification report by the applicable deadline,” said Kirkpatrick.
In Dunn County, the deadline is Monday, July 17 for all spring-seeded crops, including soybeans, forage seeding, crops intended for cover, green manure, or left standing, and Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acres.
If the crop has not been planted by the acreage reporting date, it must be reported no later than 15 calendar days after planting is completed.
A producer who acquires additional acreage after the reporting date must report no later than 30 calendars days after purchase or acquiring the lease.
A perennial forage crop is reported with the intended use of “cover only,” “green manure,” “left standing” or “seed” must be reported by July 17.
