Base designation by landowner

of the crop base(s) such as wheat, corn, and soybeans, can be
done according to the “designation by landowner” method, reports
Denesa Jolley with the Overton/Pickett County Farm
Service Agency (FSA) office. This method of division makes it
possible in some cases to keep all or most of the base with the
land where the actual crop was grown during the base establishment
period.
The parent farm owner(s) and purchaser must both agree to
this method and sign to that effect on the “Request for Reconstitution”
form used at the FSA office to process farm record
changes, Jolley said.
The land sold must have been owned by the parent farm
owner for at least three years for this division method to be an
option. Also, if there has been a subsequent transfer of ownership
from the parent farm owner’s initial purchase until the
present, this method will not apply.
Anyone having questions about base designation may call
the local FSA office at 931-823-5506, Extension 2, or e-mail
Debra.Ferrell@tn.usda.gov or Denesa.Jolley@tn.usda.gov
