Producers must report prevented planting, failed acres


Brad Fraass, executive director of Cheyenne County USDA Farm Service Agency, reminds producers to report prevented planting and failed acres in order to establish or retain FSA program eligibility.

Producers must report crop acreage they intended to plant, but due to natural disaster, they were prevented from planting. Prevented planting acreage must be reported no later than 15 calendar days after the final planting date as established by FSA and Risk Management Agency.

Additionally, producers with failed acres should also report these acres.

For losses on crops covered by the Non-Insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program and crop insurance, producers must file a “Notice of Loss” within 15 days of the occurrence of the disaster or when losses become apparent. Producers must timely file a “Notice of Loss” for failed acres on all crops, including grasses.

Contact the Cheyenne County FSA Office at (308) 254-4507 with questions.
