Sodbuster/Swampbuster Conservation Laws/Rules. The purpose of these rules are to reduce erosion, chemical/fertilizer runoff and sedimentation, to preserve wetlands, to enhance groundwater replenishment and water quality and remove incentives for producers to abuse erodible soils or to convert wetlands.  These rules have been in effect since the mid-1980s.
Compliance is required of producers to be eligible for most FSA farm program benefits (including loans). Program participants who farm highly erodible soils must follow an NRCS prepared conservation plan to minimize erosion. Participants are responsible for knowing where highly erodible lands and wetlands are and complying with their protections.
Highly erodible soils maps, conservation plans, wetland maps and advice are all available at your local NRCS office.  Check with NRCS before you break erodible land or dirt work in and around wetlands.
Ineligibility is effective the year of program withdrawal or the year non-compliant activity occurs, whichever comes first. Withdrawal and/or non-compliance will affect FSA benefits for all of your land, owned or rented and the land of your affiliates.
Interest Rates: 1.125 percent for CCC/Marketing Assistance Loans including all 2012 notes carried over to 2013. 1.125 percent to 1.875 percent for Farm Storage Facility Loans.
Farm Loan Program Loans:  Jerauld producers are still serviced out of the Beadle County FSA Office in Huron. Sanborn producers are still serviced out of the Davison County FSA Office in Mitchell.
Office Closed on Jan. 21 to observe the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.
