Donny Green, DeKalb-Cannon Co. Farm Service Agency County Executive Director, reminds local farmers and landowners of the importance of timely crop reporting. Participation in most USDA programs requires annual reporting of crops and land use and requires a report of all cropland on a farm, even though the land may not be used for annually-tilled row crops.
Field Grown and Ornamental Nursery crops have unique crop years. As a result, they also have unique crop reporting deadlines. Below are the crop year period and the acreage reporting deadline:
Nursery Crop Year 2022----June 1, 2021 through May 31, 2022
2022 Nursery Crop Reporting Deadline (field grown and container)—May 31, 2021
