USDA reminds producers of 2014 acreage reporting requirement

MANHATTAN, Kan. – U.S. Department of Agriculture Kansas Farm Service Agency State Executive Director Adrian J. Polansky is reminding agriculture producers that July 15, 2014, is the deadline to file an acreage report for spring seeded crops.  Planted acres must be reported to FSA by July 15, 2014. The Agricultural Act of 2014 (2014 Farm Bill) requires producers on a farm to submit annual acreage reports on all cropland.

“Although some federal farm program enrollments have not yet started, timely acreage reports for all crops and land uses, including prevented and failed acreage that producers submit to their local FSA office, are important to ensure program eligibility,” said Polansky.

Acreage reports to FSA are considered timely filed when completed by the applicable final crop reporting deadline, which may vary from state to state.  Producers who do not enroll by the July 15 deadline are subject to late-filing requirements.  Producers should contact their local office for an appointment to provide an accurate acreage report of their spring-seeded crops.

For information about any FSA program, including specific crop reporting deadlines and planting dates, producers should contact the Osage County FSA office at 115 W. 17th St., Lyndon, 785-828-4631, or seek information at www.fsa.usda.gov.
