USDA extends crop acreage reporting deadline for farmers affected by flooding, heavy rains

The USDA is extending the filing deadline for crop acreage reports to July 22 for Minnesota ag producers affected by heavy rains and flooding.

The extension applies to reporting spring-seeded crops to Farm Service Agency county offices and federal crop insurance agents. FSA state Executive Director Joe Martin says it will provide more flexibility for producers who experienced planting and field-work delays. Filing a timely crop acreage report is important to maintain eligibility for a number of USDA programs.

To learn more, contact your FSA county office or visit fsa.usda.gov or farmers.gov/prevented-planting.
