The Grant County USDA Service Center will continue to be open for business by phone appointment only. Program delivery staff will be working with producers by phone and online tools. Farm Service Agency (FSA), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), or other service center agency patrons are required to call to schedule a phone appointment.
Soon producers will begin the acreage reporting process. Producers will need to identify their crops, acreages, planting dates, etc., on 2020 aerial maps. Acreage reporting will also be conducted by virtual appointments. Producers can obtain their 2020 maps from FSA in a variety of ways by contacting the office.
Call FSA at 605.432.6570 – Extension 2. The phone number for NRCS and Conservation District is 605.432.6571 – Extension 3. Or email all service center employees using this format: the employee’s email@example.com. As an example: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Online services are available to customers with an eAuth account. This provides access to the farmers.gov portal where producers can view USDA farm loan information and payments and view and track certain USDA program applications and payments. Online NRCS services are available to customers through the Conservation Client Gateway. Customers can track payments, report completed practices, request conservation assistance, and electronically sign documents. Customers who do not already have an eAuth account can enroll at farmers.gov/sign-in.
