FSA failed acres reports due

U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director Gretchen Smith in Sheboygan County reminds producers to report failed acres and prevented planting in order to establish or retain FSA program eligibility.

Producers with failed acres should use form FSA-576, Notice of Loss, to report failed acres.

For losses on crops covered by the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program and crop insurance, producers must file a Notice of Loss within 15 days of the occurrence of the disaster or when losses become apparent.

Producers must timely file a Notice of Loss for failed acres on all crops including grasses. To be approved as failed acreage, the acreage must have been reported as failed acreage before the disposition of the crop; RMA data may be used for failed acreage when reported after the disposition of the crop, if the failed acreage was reported timely to RMA and supports the failed acreage information reported on the FSA-578.

Additionally, producers must report crop acreage they intended to plant, but due to natural disaster, they were prevented from planting. Prevented planting acreage must be reported on form FSA-576, Notice of Loss, no later than 15 calendar days after the final planting date as established by FSA and the Risk Management Agency.

According to Smith, the final planting date for forage seeding is May 25, corn is May 31 and Soybeans is June 10.

If a producer is unable to report the prevented planting acreage within the 15 calendar days following the final planting date, a late-filed report can be submitted. Late-filed reports will only be accepted if FSA conducts a farm visit to assess the eligible disaster condition that prevented the crop from being planted. A measurement service fee will be charged.

Please contact the Sheboygan County FSA office at (920) 467- 9917 ext 2 to schedule an appointment to file a Notice of Loss. To find your local FSA office, visit http://offices.usda.gov.
