May 31 reporting deadline for crops
May 31 is the final deadline to report fall-seeded crops, according to the Fayette County Farm Service Agency.
Annual reports are required for producers receiving benefits on DEC, ACRE, Federal Crop Insurance, CRP rental payments, commodity loans, NAP and SURE payments.
Timely and accurate acreage reports are necessary to maintain planting history on a farm and to ensure program benefits are not jeopardized.
Late-file reporting after May 31 costs a minimum of $46.
Requests for 2011 commodity loans for corn, soybeans and grain sorghum will be accepted until May 31, 2012.
The FSA office is located at 301 S. Third St. in Vandalia. The telephone number is 283-2311, and the fax number is 283-4962.
