The annual crop certification deadline is July 15th. State Executive Director for USDA’s Iowa Farm Service Agency reminds producers should file an accurate and timely report for all crops and land uses, including failed acreage and prevented planting by that date. Whitaker says, “This year’s continued wet weather has created planting problems throughout the state, making accurate reporting to their local County FSA office very important.” Also, acreage reports on crops covered by Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program should be filed in the county office no later than 15 calendar days before the onset of harvest or grazing of the specific crop acreage being reported.
