Haying deadline extended until Sept. 20
Based on the unique circumstances of timing of the release of emergency haying Aug. 29, the deputy administrator for Farm Programs has approved a request to extend the deadline to complete the emergency haying until Sept. 20.
This extended timeframe is only authorized for the counties that reached D2 Drought Severe status Aug. 27. This included Clarke and Union counties. This did not include Decatur County.
The payment reduction is reduced from 25 percent to 10 percent. For 2013 only, hay may not be sold if it was sold from the same acreage in 2011 or 2012. Emergency haying provisions the producer must leave at least 50 percent of each field or contiguous CRP fields unhayed for wildlife and the producers should be advised of practices eligible under this authority.
