Because of extreme weather conditions, many producers have not filed a 2009 acreage report, according to a news release from the USDA Farm Service Agency.
Producers may also need to request prevented planting or reported failed acreage. Where the crop year 2009 crop acreage deadlines have not passed for 2009, the final crop reporting dates are extended to Aug. 14, with the exception of the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program.
Producers enrolled in NAP must file an acreage report by the extended acreage reporting date but no later than 15 calendar days before the onset of harvest if earlier than the extended reporting date.
Acreage reports filed after Aug. 14 will require a late fee.
