USDA taking crop insurance feedback on prevented planting

The USDA is accepting public comment on prevented planting crop insurance guidelines through this summer.

The Risk Management Agency is planning listening sessions from June through August, including in-person listening sessions in 11 states, including Arkansas, Indiana, and Michigan.

USDA is specifically looking for feedback on the Harvest Price Option, “1 in 4” Rule which requires that a prevented planting coverage acreage must have been planted to a crop, insured, and harvested in at least 1 out of the previous 4 crop years, a 10 percent additional coverage option, contract price, and other additional comments.

A virtual listening session is planned for June 8 and written comments will be accepted until September 1.

Prevented planting insurance helps farmers when extreme weather conditions prevent expected plantings.
