FSA Issues Crop Reporting Requirements Reminder

Donny Green, Cannon County Farm Service Agency County Executive Director, would like to remind local farmers and landowners of the importance of timely crop reporting.

Participation in most USDA programs requires annual reporting of crops and land use and requires a report of all cropland on a farm, even though it may not be used for annually-tilled row crops.

Field Grown and Ornamental Nursery crops have unique crop years. As a result, they also have unique crop reporting deadlines. Below is the crop year period and the acreage reporting deadline:

Nursery Crop Year 2013 — June 1, 2012 through May 31, 2013

2013 Nursery Crop Reporting Deadline (field grown and container) — May 31, 2012
