USDA’s Risk Management Agency will defer accrual of interest for all farmer’s spring 2019 crop year premiums, due to the extreme weather conditions, for two months or until November 30. That’s for all policies with a premium billing date of August 15. According to the USDA, any premium not paid by one of these new deadlines will accrue interest consistent with terms of the policy. Without the deferral, policies with an August 15 premium billing date would have an interest attach starting October 1 if policies weren’t paid by September 30.

Due to heavy moisture and flooding, USDA is extending the deadline for farmers to report spring seeded crops in 12 states, including Minnesota and North Dakota. That means farmers in those states will have until July 22 to file an acreage report at their local Farm Service Agency office and crop insurance agents. Producers not in the selected states must file reports or be added to a county register by July 15.
USDA is encouraging farmers to make an appointment with their county office. Acreage reports will be considered filed on time as long as an appointment is scheduled before the deadline, even if the appointment happens after the deadline. A timely acreage report helps farmers maintain eligibility for USDA conservation and disaster assistance, crop insurance and farm loan programs.
