Summary of Collection: Most Farm Service Agency (FSA) programs are administered on the basis of ‘‘farm’’. For program purposes, a farm is a collection of tracts of land that have the same owner and the same operator. Land with different owners may be considered to be a farm if all the land is operated by one person and additional criteria are met. A farm is typically administered in the FSA county office where the farm is physically located. A farm can be transferred from the physical location county office if the principal dwelling of the farm operator has changed, a change has occurred in the operation of the land, or there has been a change that would cause the receiving administrative county office to be more accessible. FSA–179, ‘‘Transfer of Farm Record between Counties,’’ is used as the request for a farm transfer from one county to another initiated by the producer. Need and Use of the Information: The information collected on the FSA–179 is collected only if a farm transfer is being requested and is collected in a face-toface setting with county office personnel. The information is used by county office employees to document which farm is being transferred, what county it is being transferred to, and why it is being transferred. The FSA– 179 assists county committees in determining why the farm transfer is being requested and that it is not being requested for the purpose of increased program benefits, avoiding payment reductions, establishing eligibility to transfer base acres, or for circumventing any other programs provision. Without the information county offices will be unable to determine whether the producer desires to transfer a farm. Description of Respondents: Farms. Number of Respondents: 21,240.

Farm Service Agency

    Title: Transfer of Farm Records between Counties.
    OMB Control Number: 0560-0253.
    Summary of Collection: Most Farm Service Agency (FSA) programs are 
administered on the basis of ``farm''. For program purposes, a farm is 
a collection of tracts of land that have the same owner and the same 
operator. Land with different owners may be considered to be a farm if 
all the land is operated by one person and additional criteria are met. 
A farm is typically administered in the FSA county office where the 
farm is physically located. A farm can be transferred from the physical 
location county office if the principal dwelling of the farm operator 
has changed, a change has occurred in the operation of the land, or 
there has been a change that would cause the receiving administrative 
county office to be more accessible. FSA-179, ``Transfer of Farm Record 
between Counties,'' is used as the request for a farm transfer from one 
county to another initiated by the producer.
    Need and Use of the Information: The information collected on the 
FSA-179 is collected only if a farm transfer is being requested and is 
collected in a face-to-face setting with county office personnel. The 
information is used by county office employees to document which farm 
is being transferred, what county it is being transferred to, and why 
it is being transferred. The FSA-179 assists county committees in 
determining why the farm transfer is being requested and that it is not 
being requested for the purpose of increased program benefits, avoiding 
payment reductions, establishing eligibility to transfer base acres, or 
for circumventing any other programs provision. Without the information 
county offices will be unable to determine whether the producer desires 
to transfer a farm.
