2017 Spring/Summer Seeded Crop Acreage Report Deadline

FSA announces that July 17, 2017, is the deadline to report all Spring/Summer seeded crop(s) to the local Farm Service Agency. USDA regulations requires a complete acreage report(s) from producers who enroll their farm(s) into the various USDA farm programs. Typically corn, peanuts, cotton, soybeans and grain sorghum with different intended uses are reported to FSA by the July 17, 2017 deadline. However, FSA encourages local farmers to report any and all spring/summer seeded crop(s) regardless of intended use. Due to fee changes, 2017 late acreage reporting penalties could be costly to the producer as compared to previous crop years. For more information please contact the Jenkins County FSA office at 478-982-4281 extension #2.
