Overton / Pickett FSA Acreage Reporting


Submitted by: Jerry Flowers
The timely filing of an accurate acreage report for all crops and land uses, including failed acreage, can prevent loss of benefits for a number of USDA programs, including Grassland Reserve Program, Conservation Reserve Program, Non-Insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program, as well as marketing assistance loans and loan deficiency payments.
Even farmers who are not currently participating in any of the above mentioned programs should report their plantings so a record will be on file in the event that future farm bills offer programs which would be of interest.
Acreage reports for fall seeded crop must be filed by May 15th to be considered timely filed. Acreage reports for spring seeded crops, hay and pasture must be filed by July 15th to be considered timely filed. Reports which are not considered timely filed will be assessed a late filing fee. Acreage reports will be accepted from farm operators, farm owners, tenants and sharecroppers, and persons authorized by power-of -attorney.
