Failed crops must be reported to FSA
Producers are to notify Marion County Farm Service Agency of any destruction of crops that may have been affected by weather conditions such as excessive heat, drought, or other natural disaster and the crop could not be re-planted.
Producers should file reports with the county office, describing the cause of loss and what use they will make of the crop. Producers who have crop insurance and have already notified their crop insurance agent of loss will still need to contact FSA to ensure planting history is protected.
Producers, who have already reported planted crops such as corn, soybeans, or sorghum and intend to destroy the crop, need to report to the FSA office the number of acres that will be destroyed within 15 calendar days of the disaster occurrence and before disposition of the crop.
Appraisals will not be made by FSA and the only benefit will be a protection of acreage history credit.
For more information, call (620) 382-3714.
