USDA Reminds Producers to Complete Crop Acreage Reports for Fall-Seeded Crops

The USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) reminds agricultural producers in Greenville and Pickens Counties to complete crop acreage reports by the January 15th deadline for fall-seeded small grains.

Fall-seeded small grains include: Barley, Oats, Rye, Triticale and Wheat

To complete your acreage report, please call the Greenville and Pickens FSA County office to schedule an appointment. FSA can work with producers to file timely acreage reports by phone, email, online tools and virtual meetings. The Greenville and Pickens County office is not open for in-person appointments at this time.

The Greenville and Pickens FSA office is using Microsoft Teams software to virtually meet with producers, if interested, to review maps and documents for certification. Producers who want to schedule a virtual appointment can download the Microsoft Teams app on their smart phone or tablet and call the FSA office for an appointment. You can also use Microsoft Teams from your personal computer without downloading software.  

The Greenville and Pickens FSA office will provide maps to producers along with instructions for completing and returning the maps through either mail or email. After planting is complete, producers must return the signed form certifying their acreage report to the FSA office through mail or email by January 15th.
