Preventive Planting and Failed Acreage Claims
Nebraska Ag Connection - 06/11/2014
Several areas in Nebraska have been affected by severe weather this spring. If a weather related event has caused the inability to plant an intended crop, or has caused a planted crop to fail, it is important to
file prevented planted or failed acreage claims with FSA and your crop insurance provider timely so that field visits may be completed if necessary.
Prevented planted acres must be reported within 15 days of the final planting date for the crop. Failed acres must be reported prior to destruction of the crop, or if the acreage will be planted to another crop.
Producers with NAP (Non-insured Disaster Assistance Program) coverage through FSA must report failed acres within 15 days of the date that the loss becomes apparent.
Contact your local FSA Office for additional information.
