FSA urges farmers to report failed crop acres before planting

FSA leaders are urging farmers to report prevented planting acres or failed crop acres before putting in a new crop.  Wisconsin FSA Director Sandy Chalmers says they have received many reports of winterkill for alfalfa and mixed forage throughout the state.  She says timely reporting of the acreage is necessary in order to establish or retain FSA program eligibility, and that must be done before disposition of the crop.

For losses on crops covered by the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) or crop insurance, producers must file a notice of loss within 15 days of the occurrence of the disaster or when losses become apparent.

Producers with questions should contact their local FSA office.
