Acreage reporting deadline nears
U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Wilson County Farm Service Agency Executive Director Stephen Svacina reminds agricultural producers that Tuesday, July 15, is the deadline to file an acreage report for spring seeded crops. The 2014 Farm Bill requires producers on a farm to submit annual acreage reports on all cropland.
According to a June 30 press release, acreage reports to the Farm Service Agency are considered timely filed when completed by the applicable final crop reporting deadline, which may vary from state to state. Perennial forage crops intended for grazing or haying were required to be reported last fall, whereas perennial forage crops with an intended use of cover only, green manure, left standing, or seed, must be reported by July 15.
Producers should contact their county Farm Service Agency office if they are uncertain about acreage reporting deadlines. Svacina said that failed acreage must be reported before the disposition of the crop and that prevented acreage must be reported within 15 calendar days after the final planting date for the applicable crop.
For more information, contact the Wilson County office located at 1106 10th St. (U.S. 181) in Floresville, visit www.fsa.usda.gov, or call 830-393-3411.
