Acreage reports due by Nov. 15 PDF E-mail

Producers of perennial forage and fall-seeded small grains must submit their 2013 acreage report for those crops to the Farm Service Agency, and to their crop insurance agent, by Nov. 15.

In prior years, reports for these crops were not due to FSA until late June/early July.

Crop acreage reports are essential to maintaining eligibility for multiple FSA program benefits, and establishing a record of historical cropping. Currently proposed Farm Bill legislation continues the crop reporting requirement.

Nov. 15 is also the crop insurance sales closing date for forage production in Nebraska.

Producers are reminded of the importance to accurately report the crop, crop acreage, intended use, irrigation practice, planting date and producer shares. Prevented planted acres must be reported within 15 days of the final planting date. Failed acres must be reported to FSA within 15 days of when the loss becomes apparent for non-insurable crops, or otherwise prior to disposition of the crop.

Contact your local FSA office with questions or to schedule an acreage certification appointment.
