The acreage reporting deadline is approaching soon!

An important deadline for spring crop growers is now just days away.

July 15th is the last day for crop growers to submit their acreage planting this year to their local Farm Service Agency Office and it is a deadline you will not want to miss according to FSA Assistant Deputy Administrator Kim Graham.

“Our Acreage Report documents crops and where they are grown on a farm or ranch, along with their crop intended use, filing an accurate and timely acreage report for all crops and land uses, including failed acreage and prevented planted acreage can prevent the loss of program benefits to many of our farmers. It puts them in a position to come and be able to participate in most of our programs because the anchorage report is a foundational eligibility requirement for many USDA programs and most of the FSA, or Farm Service Agency, programs,” Graham explains.

It is important to note that the deadline date can vary based on crops and county. However, the majority are due July 15th.
