Signup for emergency assistance through the 2012 and 2013 livestock, honeybees and farm-raised fish program, originally scheduled to end today, has been extended to Aug. 15.

The new deadline gives livestock, honeybee and farm-raised fish producers who suffered losses because of disease, adverse weather, wildlife or colony collapse disease between Oct. 1, 2011, and Sept. 30, 2013, another two weeks to enroll in the program, the U.S. Department of Agriculture says.

Producers are encouraged to visit their local Farm Service Agency or visit FSA’s web site, www.fsa.usda.gov.
