Nebraska producers have been granted an extension for reporting prevented planting acres for spring crops to USDA’s Farm Service Agency.
Producers who participate in programs administered by FSA typically have 15 days after the final planting date for the specific crop in their county to report prevented planting acres. Because of this year’s weather, the deadline in all counties for reporting prevent-planted acres has been extended to July 15, the same as FSA acreage certification.
This change does NOT affect reporting deadlines for crop insurance or for crops covered through FSA’s Non-Insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program. If you farm in other states, check with your FSA office regarding your deadline.
FSA recommends filing as soon as possible and making an appointment to reduce possible wait times.
Call your crop insurance officer as soon as possible with any prevent plant questions and to complete your 2019 crop insurance acreage report.
