FSA Extends Prevent Plant Reporting Deadline for Nebraska Farmers

Posted on 06/24/2019 2:51 PM

USDA’s Farm Service Agency has extended the deadline for producers in Nebraska to report their spring prevented plant crop acres to July 15, 2019, to give farmers “flexibility in the reporting timeline after delays in planting due to the challenging spring weather.” Normally, producers have 15 calendar days after the final planting date for a crop to report prevented plant.

The extension applies to FSA programs only, and does not change any crop insurance reporting deadlines, FSA details, adding that the extension does not apply to crops that producers have covered through FSA’s Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP).

While the deadline has been extended, FSA is encouraging producers to communicate with their county FSA office as soon as possible once they complete both their certification and their prevented plant acre reports.

 That new July 15 deadline for Nebraska producers coincides with FSA’s acreage certification deadline.
