Upcoming Crop Certification Deadline - Monday, Dec.
The deadline to file an acreage report for
fall-seeded small grains and perennial forages for
the 2014 crop year is December 16, 2013. In our
area, this will primarily involve wheat and any
cropland field that is planted to a crop such as
alfalfa, clover or mixed grass that is baled,
chopped or grazed for 2014.
Beginning with the 2014 crop year, which is now, all
fall-seeded crops reported after December 16th,
2013, will be considered "late-filed" and subject to
a late-filing fee of $46 per farm. NOTE:
Perennial fall forage crops include all existing
legumes and grasses harvested/baled, including
waterways. Legumes and grasses (for any use)
planted in the spring of 2014 will be considered
timely filed if reported by July 15, 2014.
Please stop by or contact the office at
217-735-5508, ext 2, if you are not sure if this
change affects your farming operation.
