With spring planting under way across most of Wisconsin, the Farm Service Agency (FSA) reminds producers to report any prevented or failed acreage to their local office right away. Failed acreage must be reported to FSA before disposition of the failed crop. Prevented planted acres should be reported within 15 days of the final planting date of the crop.
Also, producers should submit their annual acreage report to their local FSA county office by July 15 to meet FSA program eligibility requirements. Accurate acreage reports are necessary to determine and maintain eligibility for the Direct and Counter-cyclical Program (DCP), Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) and programs extended from the 2008 Farm Bill.
Producers should contact their local county FSA office if they have any questions. For more information visit fsa.usda.gov.
