FSA clarifies delinquent loan status

In an effort to avoid producer confusion and inconvenience, the USDA Farm Service Agency has clarified rules that determine when producers participating in the FSA Farm Loan Program are considered delinquent and how that status affects their ability to participate in various FSA programs.

Prompting the Agency's action was the concern that the term “delinquent” has multiple definitions as it applied to various FSA programs and could inadvertently create problems for producers.Plains Cotton Growers has worked closely with FSA personnel in Texas and Washington and with National Cotton Council to obtain the clarification.

The FSA notice, LP-1979, specifies that producers are not considered delinquent until 90 days after the due date on a loan made to FSA through its loan program.
