Prevented Planting for 2012 Wheat
The wet, cool weather this fall has caused harvest delays and challenges in getting wheat planted on a timely basis this fall. Farmers in Ohio, who are prevented from planting wheat because of a natural disaster, may report the acreage to the Farm Service Agency (FSA) within 15 calendar days after the final planting date. Ohio has 2 different wheat planting deadline dates (northern and southern counties).
Producers have until the final Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC) planting date of October 20, 2011 in Wyandot County to timely plant fall wheat. Producers and farmers who were prevented from planting wheat by the final planting date in this county have until November 4, 2011 to visit their local FSA county office and report the prevented planting acreage. This is important when the wheat is insured so FSA and Risk Management records for 2012 match and also for ACRE (Average Crop Revenue Assistance Program).
Prevented planting is the inability to plant the intended crop acreage with the proper equipment during the established planting period for the crop type because of a natural disaster, (does not include late maturing crops due to the late spring planting of 2011 crops). Producers, who request prevented planting acreage credit must report the acreage on form FSA-578 and complete a manual report of loss on form CCC-576, part B within 15 calendar days after the final planting date. Please visit your local FSA county office if a natural disaster condition has prevented you from planting wheat this fall. SIGNUP FOR 2010 SURE THIS FALL AND WINTER Wyandot County was declared a disaster for 2010. Applications for persons experiencing at least a 10 percent or greater yield loss in one crop can apply for disaster assistance, starting November 14, 2011. In counties not declared as disaster, any yield loss must be at least 50% or greater to qualify for possible payment. June 1, 2012 will be the final application deadline for 2010 SURE (Supplemental Revenue Assurance Program). Risk Management Purchase Requirement applies as the main eligibility factor, meaning that 2010 crop insurance is required on all crops of economic significance, on all farms by the farming operation. ELECTRONIC NEWSLETTERS, Because of budget being very tight, electronic newsletters will become a primary method of providing outreach about government programs. Please provide your email address and update this if your change service providers by sending a message to Vicki.email@example.com or phone the FSA office at 419-294-2127 to provide your email contact information?
