Farm Bill Sign-Up Deadline is Friday

Feb 25, 2015
WASHINGTON, DC -- Farm Bill base acreage and yield update deadlines are still due this Friday although the Farm Service Agency (FSA) has made assurances that just being in the official registry will preclude any penalties. 

Because this is a new system for everyone, producers as well as the FSA, the paperwork has been overwhelming in some districts. Producers who have not already completed the sign-up process should contact their local FSA office immediately to secure their sign-up status. 

"At a meeting today with USA Rice and the FSA, it was clear the agency recognized the challenges around the imminent sign-up," said USA Rice Federation Vice President of Government Affairs Ben Mosely. "They are prepared to help producers complete the process but producers must get in touch with FSA by Friday to be in compliance."
