Illinois FSAs to extend prevented plant crop report deadline

Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD (WSIL)-- Illinois farmers have until July 15 to report acres they intended to plant this past spring. 

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Farm Service Agency (FSA) has extended the prevented plant crop reporting deadline affected by spring flooding and excessive moisture.

State executive director William Graff said that its been a challenge for producers across the state to get crops planted in the fields. Graff says the extension provides flexibility for farmers.

“Producers need to report prevented plant acres to retain eligibility for FSA programs benefits,” Graff said.

However, the extension doesn’t apply to crops covered by FSA’s Non insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP).

Producers should check with their local FSA office regarding prevented plant provisions for NAP-covered crops.  To locate your local FSA office, click here.
