Deadline for Reporting 2019 Farm Acres to FSA is This Wednesday, January 15Sat, 11 Jan 2020 21:51:27 CST
If you haven't reported your 2019 acres yet to your local Farm Service Agency office, the deadline is Wednesday, January 15.
Scott Biggs, State Executive Director for the USDA Oklahoma Farm Service Agency, says it's essential that all farmers get those acres reported by the January 15 deadline, "We finished up MFP. There's been a lot of focus in Oklahoma getting that program out the door. The third round of payments are coming. But right now, we have the January 15 acreage reporting deadline is upon us. We got a lot of producers and haven't had a chance to come in the office yet and record their acres, but that deadline is January 15, and you can call make an appointment at a local office, and they'll get you in as quick as we can."
As long as farmers make that appointment, Biggs says they will make every effort to get those acres reported, which will allow farmers to be eligible for programs. The ARC/PLP program has a deadline coming up in March. Still, Biggs says reporting the acres now is essential for that program as well, "Yes, the eligible acres, acres reporting, we have to have this acreage reporting done to make you eligible for other programs that are coming."
