The Farm Service Agency reminds farmers the final date to complete a crop acreage report for the 2013 crop year is July 15. Farmers who participate in U.S. Department of Agriculture programs through the Farm Service Agency should file a crop acreage report annually to retain program eligibility. Farms that fail to file an acreage report timely will be charged a late filing fee after July 15 to remain eligible for USDA benefits. FSA also reminds farmers that the 2013 DCP program signup continues through August 2.
