Crop Insurance Deadlines

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Risk Management Agency reminds farmers about the fast-approaching (Jan. 31 through March 15) winter and spring sales closing dates for Multiple Peril Crop Insurance programs. This also includes the whole farm insurance programs: Adjusted Gross Revenue Pilot and Adjusted Gross Revenue-Lite. AGR and AGR-Lite cover most farm-raised crops, animals and animal products. Farmers are encouraged to visit with their crop insurance agent to learn specific details for the 2013 crop year. Federal crop insurance policies are sold and delivered solely through private insurance companies and agents. A list of crop insurance agents is available at all USDA Service Centers in the United States or on RMA’s website at http://www3.rma.usda.gov/tools/agents/
