Crop Insurance Deadline for Fall-seeded Forages
June 13, 2019
Vermont producers are reminded that the final date to apply for crop insurance coverage for fall-seeded forages for the 2020 crop is July 31. Current policyholders who wish to make changes to their existing policies also have until July 31 to do so. Crop insurance coverage decisions must be made on or before the sales closing date. Fall-seeded forage acreage that will be covered by crop insurance must be planted by August 31.
Crop insurance is sold and delivered solely through licensed crop insurance agents. A list of crop insurance agents is available online by clicking on the Agent Locator on the RMA website. Producers can also find the RMA Cost Estimator at the website to get a premium amount estimate of their insurance needs.
