Acreage report deadline is Friday

August 14, 2008


Farmers expecting to enroll in Farm Service Agency programs must report acreage for spring-seeded crops by Friday.

Certifying acreage allows producers to remain eligible for Price Support Programs, the Noninsured Crop Assistance Program (NAP), the Conservation Reserve Program, and Direct and Counter-Cyclical Program. NAP acreages must be certified by Friday or 15 days prior to the harvest or grazing.

To apply for FSA benefits, farmers should contact their local USDA Service Center.
