2020 Fall Acreage Reporting

It is time to complete your acreage report for 2020 fall crops (wheat/oats).  These reports are due December 16, 2019.

If you are not planting 2020 wheat, an acreage report must be signed verifying “zero acres” for your fall policy.

Be sure to certify your crops, at the FSA office, as soon as you finish planting.  Once you have certified, please ask for a Producer Print- 578.  You can bring a copy of your 578 to our office or have it faxed/emailed to us at johnminorcompany@gmail.com.

If you have trouble getting in to certify at the FSA office by 12/16/19, please call us and we will be glad to help you complete your acreage report.

All planted acres and prevented planted acres must be shown on your Acreage Report (insurable or uninsurable – this includes failed crops).

Please keep in mind, the name of the entity, the people sharing in the entity, the share arrangement, the irrigation practice, and the number of acres planted should be the same at the FSA (ASCS) Office as it is on your insurance policy.

If interested, please call us about a crop-hail policy which provides protection from hail, fire, lightning, transit, and storage in personal grain bins.

Thank you!
