USDA extends acreage reporting deadline in 12 states

USDA extends acreage reporting deadline in 12 states

The USDA has extended the acreage reporting deadline to July 22 for spring planted crops in twelve states.  The twelve states include Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin, Kentucky, North Dakota, and Tennessee. 

Farm Service Agency (FSA) administrator Richard Fordyce says

the new deadline is to help accommodate farmers who have been battling the

weather.  “Farmers were still trying to

make planting decisions up until just a few days ago,” he says.  “If they hadn’t made a decision whether they

were going to be able to plant for not plant they weren’t attempting to make an

acreage report.”

He tells Brownfield for farmers to be eligible for several USDA

programs they have to file their crop acreage reports in a timely manner.  “One that comes to mind is the ARC/PLC

program,” he says.  “And any other types

of programs that come about.”

Fordyce says farmers in affected states need to call and set

up appointments with their local FSA county offices before the July 22nd

deadline.
