Filing an accurate acreage report for all crops and land uses will prevent area farmers and ranchers from losing benefits for a variety of Farm Service Agency (FSA) programs.

All small grains such as wheat and rye that was planted this fall for 2019 harvest, grazing, and for cover only must be reported by Dec. 17.

Prevented planting must be reported no later than 15 days after the final planting date for the applicable crop. Nov. 15 was the final planting date for 2019 wheat in Allen and Woodson Counties. As a result, prevented planting acreage must be reported to FSA by Friday, if you want this reflected on your acreage report without any late-filed fee being assessed.
