FSA Announcements

Wisconsin Farm Service Agency (FSA) has a couple reminders for producers. The FSA county committee farmer candidate nominations begin June 15 and will continue until August 1. To be eligible to serve on an FSA county committee, a person must participate or cooperate in a program administered by FSA, be eligible to vote in a county committee election and reside in the local administrative area in which the person is a candidate.

For a nomination form, visit http://www.fsa.usda.gov.

FSA also reminds farmers that FSA is required to assist the Risk Management Agency (RMA) to improve the integrity of the Federal Crop Insurance Program through the prevention of fraud, waste and abuse. Producers must insure that agents are informed of entity changes in their farming operations and changes in the risks and interests in the crops insured.

Producers who become aware of potential crop insurance abuse should report the information to the local FSA office at 1.800.424.9121.
