Ask FSA Andy about a receipt of services

to-do list

Hello Friends,

Have you ever had one of those days when your list of things to do was so long, you could not remember whether or not you completed a job? I think we have all been there at some time or another when life has us pulled in too many directions.

If your list included a visit to your local Farm Service Agency office, we may have provided you with a receipt that proves you can check at least one thing off your list.

The FSA provides a receipt to customers who request or receive assistance or information on FSA programs. As part of FSA’s mission to provide enhanced customer service, producers who visit FSA will receive documentation of services requested and provided. A service is any information, program, or loan assistance provided whether through a visit, email, fax or letter.

Receipts include the date, summary of the visit and any agricultural information, program and/or loan assistance provided to an individual or entity. In some cases, a form or document — such as a completed and signed program enrollment form — serve as the customer receipt instead of a printed or electronic receipt.

Speaking of lists, here is one thing you may want to add to your list. All producers are reminded that the acreage reporting date for fall seeded crops has been changed to Dec. 15. This applies to all fall seeded crops including: fall barley, fall wheat and all other fall-seeded small grains.

Add to your to-do list a call to schedule an appointment to certify your wheat crop.

That’s all for now,
FSA Andy
