Prevented Planting Reporting Deadline Extended

Christine White, State Executive Director of USDAs Michigan Farm Service Agency announced today the extension of the 2011 reporting deadline for all prevented planted crops to correspond with the final crop reporting date. Producers must file a notice of loss (CCC-576) for prevented planting in their County Farm Service Agency (FSA) office by July 15, 2011. For fall-seeded small grains, the deadline has been extended to June 30, 2011.

This spring, many Michigan farmers have faced the challenge of excess rainfall and tight deadlines. said White. Extending the closing date for filing a prevented planting claim will give producers more time to make the best decisions for their operations.

The extension will enable producers to report their crops and file a prevented planting notice of loss at the same time. The prior prevented planting deadline, 15 days after the crops final planting date, will be in affect for the 2012 crop year.

When filing a notice of loss, producers must establish they made efforts to plant and were prevented from doing so by a natural disaster. The County Committee (COC) may require proof of intent to plant by requesting documentation of field preparation, seed purchases and other information. Prior years planting history will no longer be considered when making a determination for prevented planted acreage claims.
