Deadline Approaches For Crop Insurance

The final date to apply for crop insurance for fall-planted crops, such as cultivated wild rice, forage production, grass seed, mint, rye, and wheat, is Sept. 30 for the 2022 crop year.

Current policyholders who wish to make changes to their existing coverage also have until the Sept. 30 sales closing date to do so, says USDA’s Risk Management Agency.    

Producers may select from several coverage options, including yield coverage, revenue protection and area risk policies. Producers are encouraged to visit their crop insurance agent soon to learn specific details for the 2022 crop year.

A list of crop insurance agents is available online using the RMA Agent Locator:
