In order to comply with FSA program eligibility requirements, producers must file an accurate crop acreage certification report. The deadline to certify spring-seeded crops such as corn and soybeans is less than one month away. Producers are asked to schedule a certification appointment with their county FSA office as soon as possible if they have not done so already. To find your local FSA office, click here.
