Feds Extend Reporting Time for Crop Insurance in Flood Areas

June 25, 2008

Federal crop insurance officials say they will allow additional time, until Aug 15, 2008, for submitting acreage reports for all 2008 crop year spring-seeded acreage in areas impacted by flooding and extreme weather conditions.

This additional time applies to spring-seeded crop acreage for all counties in Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin, according to RMA, the risk management arm of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

“Insured producers are still encouraged to report acreage at their earliest opportunity,” said RMA Administrator Eldon Gould. “This is because claims cannot be completed until acreage reports have been filed and liability established.”

Producers are encouraged to contact their crop insurance agent for more information.
