ST. PAUL, MINN, – Farmers must report prevented planting acreage to their local USDA-Farm Service Agency office by July 15, 2013. FSA State Executive Director Debra Crusoe stated, “Due to an unseasonably cool and wet spring, planting has been significantly delayed or prevented in many areas of Minnesota this crop year.” “Farmers must remember to visit their local FSA office before July 15 to report all their crop acreage, including that which has been prevented from planting.” Crusoe said.
