USDA offers noninsured crop protection

Producers of noninsurable crops can get some relief from USDA Farm Agency when their crops are compromised by natural disasters.

The Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program provides financial assistance to producers when low yields, loss of inventory, or prevented plantings occur due to natural disasters.

Basic coverage fees are $250 per crop or $750 per producer per administrative county, whichever is less. No producer pays more than $1,875.

Deadline to apply for spring planted crops is March 15.
