FSA reminds producers to file Annual Report of Acreage

Greensburg — Julia A. Wickard, State Executive Director of USDA's Farm Service Agency (FSA) in Indiana today reminded producers to submit their annual report of acreage to their local FSA county office to meet FSA program eligibility requirements.

"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," said Wickard. "FSA's employees stand ready to assist producers during the busy spring season."

Accurate acreage reports are necessary to determine and maintain eligibility for most programs administered by FSA, such as the Direct and

Counter-Cyclical Payment Program (DCP) and the Average Crop Revenue

Election Program (ACRE). Further, these acreage reports allow producers

to provide current information about crops planted and land use. This

information can greatly assist producers in demonstrating eligibility for

future conservation and disaster relief.

Acreage reports are considered timely filed when completed by the

applicable final crop reporting deadline. General crop reporting deadlines for Indiana are:

May 31 Ð Fall and spring seeded small grains in Southern Indiana

July 15 Ð Spring seeded crops and CRP for entire state

July 15 Ð Fall and spring seeded small grains in Northern Indiana

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. For questions on this or any FSA program, including specific crop reporting deadlines and planting dates, producers should contact their county FSA office. More information on FSA programs is available at: www.fsa.usda.gov.
