USDA Reminds Producers to Complete Crop Acreage Reports for Fall
 
The USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) reminds agricultural producers in Davidson-Davie County to complete crop acreage reports by January 15, 2021 for fall-seeded small grains.

“To make sure you’re eligible for many USDA programs, you need to file an accurate crop acreage report by the applicable deadline,” said Pacer Sheets, Davidson-Davie, FSA county executive director.

To complete your acreage report, please call the Davidson-Davie County FSA office to schedule an appointment. FSA can work with producers to file timely acreage reports by phone, mail and email.
 
The Davidson-Davie County office is not open for in-person appointments at this time.

The Davidson-Davie County FSA office will provide maps to producers along with instructions for completing and returning the maps through either mail or email. After planting is complete, producers must return the signed form certifying their acreage report to the FSA office through mail or email by January 15, 2021.

The following exception applies to acreage reporting dates:
•If the crop has not been planted by the acreage reporting date, the acreage must be reported no later than 15 calendar days after planting is completed.

Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) policy holders should note that the acreage reporting date for NAP-covered crops is the earlier of the date listed above or 15 calendar days before grazing or harvesting of the crop begins.

For questions, please call the Davidson-Davie County FSA office at 336-248-2687, extension 2.
