The U.S. Department of Agriculture has extended the final certification date for reporting planted crop acreage to Aug. 14.

Because of extreme weather conditions across portions of the U.S., many producers have not filed a 2009 acreage report. Prior to the extension, producers were required to report small gains by June 30, 2009 and all other crops by July 15.

The extension of the certification date to Aug. 14 provides producers additional time to report their planted acreage, which is a requirement to obtain benefits for most Farm Service Agency Programs,” said W. Todd Warner, county executive director of the Sandusky County Farm Service Agency.
