SPRINGFIELD, Ill., - Producers of spring-planted crops interested in buying crop insurance, or making a change to an existing policy, can do so until the March 15, sales closing date.

Brian Frieden, Director of USDA Risk Management Agency's Springfield Regional Office, urges producers to contact a crop insurance agent for details. Crop insurance can protect producers from natural disasters like last year's drought, which affected crop yields across the country. Producers have a number of choices. Group policies offer coverage based on county yield data available in most counties.

A list of crop insurance agents is available at all USDA Service Centers or on the RMA web site at: http://www.rma.usda.gov/tools/agent.html.
