Crop Insurance Update: Acreage Reporting and Ways You Can Report Acres
Due to the Covid -19 pandemic, the crop insurance acreage reporting process will be slightly different. Below you will find the different ways you can report your acres.
- FSA 578 Forms – Mail, email or drop off your FSA 578 for us to complete. Please feel free to utilize our FSB drive-up windows to drop forms off until lobbies reopen.
- Phone – Complete your acreage report over the phone with an agent
- Mail/Email – At your request, we will mail or email you a copy of your acreage report to complete
- ACR – Automated Crop Reporting
We encourage you to provide us with a copy of your Farm Service Agency 578 Detail & Maps. We will use the data from these forms to gather your acres, plant dates, and percentage of interest for each field.
The deadline to report acres is Wednesday, July 15, 2020 with both FSA and Federal Crop Insurance.
Thank you for your continued business and we look forward to seeing you soon!
