1-19 NWR Crop Insurance Deadlines
I called Jo Lynne Seufer, Risk Management Specialist?USDA/Risk Management Agency. For 2017 spring-planted onions in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington, the final date to purchase or modify crop insurance is February 1. The date for all other spring-seeded crops is March 15.
Farmers interested in purchasing the Whole Farm Revenue Protection for 2017 also need to do so by March 15. More information about the product can be found on the RMA Whole-Farm web page.
Farmers are encouraged to visit their crop insurance agent soon to learn specific details for the 2017 crop year. Crop insurance coverage decisions must be decided on or before the sales closing date.
Crop insurance is sold and delivered solely through private crop insurance agents. A list of crop insurance agents is available at all USDA Service Centers and online at the RMA Agent Locator. Producers can use the RMA Cost Estimator to get a premium amount estimate of their insurance needs online. Learn more about crop insurance and the modern farm safety net at www.rma.usda.gov.
