fsa 300CALHOUN, Ky. (95/29/19) — U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency Executive Director Melanie Barnes in McLean County reminds producers to report prevented planting 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 on form FSA-576, Notice of Loss, no later than 15 calendar days after the final planting date as established by FSA and the Risk Management Agency.

According to Barnes, the final planting date for corn is May 30, early soybeans is June 15 and double crop soybeans is June 20.

Producers will need to provide evidence of the intent to plant by bringing in receipts for the purchase of seed, chemicals and fertilizers when reporting preventive planting acres.

If a producer is unable to report the prevented planting acreage within the 15 calendar days following the final planting date, a late-filed report can be submitted. Late-filed reports will only be accepted if FSA conducts a farm visit to assess the eligible disaster condition that prevented the crop from being planted. A measurement service fee will be charged.

Please contact the McLean County FSA office at 270-273-3918 to schedule an appointment to file a Notice of Loss. To find your local FSA office, visit http://offices.usda.gov.
