USDA Honeybee Colony Reporting Policy

Press release

Honeybee producers are required to file an initial report of colony inventory by January 2 each year and report any changes to inventory, including movement of colonies into or outside of the county, within 30 days.

Beginning with the 2024 crop year, honeybee producers will need to use the new Honeybee Colony Inventory Reporting Form, CCC-771. 

The established crop year for honey is January 1 through December 31. An initial report of colonies on a CCC-771 must be submitted to your local FSA office for each unit in which you have an interest, by Jan. 2 of each year.
