Welcome to the Louisiana FSA Website!

The employees of FSA look forward to assisting you as we continue our mission of providing customer based service to Louisiana's farmers and ranchers.

COVID-19 and FSA: All Service Centers Now Open to In-Person Traffic

All USDA Service Centers in Ohio are now open to in-person, walk-in traffic. Appointments are no longer required, although they are still encouraged when possible so staff can be most effective with your time. In addition, Service Center staff in all offices will continue to offer customers options for service using virtual/online meetings, email and other digital tools, as appropriate.

Local office status could return to "by appointment only," depending on weekly COVID case information. Call your local office for additional information. To find your office contact information, visit USDA FSA County office

County Committee Elections

County committees are unique to FSA and serve as a direct link between agricultural communities across the country and USDA. For more information on FSA county committees, visit fsa.usda.gov/elections.

Producers with farmers.gov accounts can now access farm records and maps online, the latest self-service feature added to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) website.

You can quickly and easily access your land information in real time by desktop computer, tablet or phone. Capabilities include:

  • View, print and export detailed farm records such as cropland, base acres, yields, CRP acres, land ownership details, and much more;
  • View, print and export farm/tract maps that can be provided to lenders, chemical or fertilizer providers, and FSA for reporting acreage and crop insurance agents; and
  • Export common land unit (field) boundaries as ESRI shapefiles.

The ability to access these records on demand without a visit to the service center saves you time and money.
