USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Juan Garcia announced Thursday an extension of the FSA acreage reporting deadline. Farmers and landowners have an additional 18 calendar days to submit their annual report of acreage to their local FSA county office. The deadline has been extended from Monday, July 15, 2013, to Friday, Aug. 2, 2013. Only the FSA reporting deadline has been extended. The acreage reporting requirement for crop insurance remains July 15. Farmers should visit their USDA Service Center to complete acreage reporting for FSA.
