RMA TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL TIME FOR ACREAGE REPORTING

WASHINGTON, Jun 24, 2008 - RMA has announced it will allow additional time, until Aug 15, 2008, for submitting acreage reports for all 2008 crop year spring-seeded acreage in areas impacted by flooding and extreme weather conditions, because of the difficulty in timely reporting due to disruptions in communications and other important infrastructure.

This additional time applies to spring-seeded crop acreage for all counties in Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

"Insured producers are still encouraged to report acreage at their earliest opportunity," said RMA Administrator Eldon Gould. "This is because claims cannot be completed until acreage reports have been filed and liability established."

Producers are encouraged to contact their crop insurance agent for more information.
