New 2014 crop insurance guidelines for cover crops PDF Print E-mail

SPRINGFIELD, Ill., - The USDA's Risk Management Agency (RMA) recently announced updated guidance providing producers more flexibility when insuring a crop that follows a cover crop in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio.
RMA changed federal crop insurance provisions concerning cover crops as a result of increasing interest in this practice.
According to Brian Frieden, director of the risk management agency's Springfield regional office, the changes are a result of a coordinated effort with the Natural Resources Conservation Service and the Farm Service Agency to develop a consistent, simple and flexible policy across the three agencies. "For farmers wanting to insure their spring crop following a cover crop the cover crop must have been planted within the last 12 months and terminated at, or within five days after planting, but before crop emergence," noted Frieden. "Cover crops may also be hayed, grazed or used for silage as long as the planned amount of biomass is available at the time termination." Producers using cover crops are encouraged to discuss these changes with their crop insurance agent when making decisions for the upcoming crop year.
