During the 1-hour live event, Nebraska FSA program specialists will review details of the QLA program, provide examples of qualifying crop quality losses and review the steps to complete a QLA application.

The deadline to apply for the QLA program is Friday, March 5. The QLA program provides assistance to producers who suffered eligible crop quality losses due to natural disasters occurring in 2018 and 2019. As part of the application process, producers must be able to provide documentation to support claims of quality loss or nutrient loss, such as scale tickets, sales receipts from buyers, settlement sheets or written sales contracts.

“This program may be applicable for quality losses suffered as a result of excessive moisture and flooding in 2019,” said Tim Divis, acting state executive director for Nebraska Farm Service Agency. “FSA has already completed program work related to quantity losses, and we want to ensure producers understand how this program works regarding quality losses.”
