Farming Partnerships and NCDA&CS Hurricane Florence Agriculture Disaster Program 2018
North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is working to complete crop claims pertaining to the NCDA&CS Hurricane Florence Agricultural Disaster Program of 2018. Anson producers identified as missing information required to further process their FSA-578 Crop Loss Claims were sent information by NCDA&CS requesting potential farmers in a farming partnership to update their application’s farming partnership information if needed. NCDA&CS asks that producers check with their farming partner to determine if further information is needed to process their respective crop loss status. The application site will be open for this purpose from April 15 – April 30, 2019, at 5 p.m.
The applicant must use their application reference number provided to them at the time of their initial Hurricane Florence Disaster Application. Information may be entered only if an application with a reference number is on file and is limited to adding a commodity for crop loss, or adding partnership producer information.
After clicking through to the Agricultural Disaster Program website, additional crops may be added using “Crop Addition Form.” To register a producer partner whose information is still needed for completion of an application of crop loss, please click on the tab for “Partner Addition Form.” Application questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The original application reference number must be included for the information to be processed or recognized.
For technical assistance on updating, producers may contact Anson Extension Agent, Aimee Colf, at 704-694-2415. Please also see our website for the referenced letter to producers, list of eligible crops, and additional form instructions.
