Reporting Agricultural Losses and Agricultural Disaster Relief

Farmers and ranchers know all too well that natural disasters can be a common, and likely a costly, variable to their operation. The Farm Service Agency (FSA) has emergency assistance programs to provide financial help when disasters strike. Timely reporting of damage and loss is essential for program participation. Additionally, some of those programs require a disaster designation to trigger eligibility. Agricultural producers can play a vital role in the disaster designation process. Please report crop and livestock losses and damage to agricultural land or structure s to your Farm Service Agency county office and your crop insurance agent, if applicable.
