Producers Encouraged to Work with County FSA Office on Spring Acreage Certification

Nebraska FSA offices are gearing up for the spring acreage certification season. Producers are reminded to contact their county FSA office for instructions on the process their county office will use. Some offices make maps available ahead of time, while others encourage producers to keep track of what they plant, where they plant, and when they plant to aid in the certification process once planting is complete. Producers also may access their maps online as long as they have an account established through the secure farmers.gov portal

Questions? Contact your county FSA office.
