Westminster, MD (PRWEB) February 24, 2015
MidAtlantic Farm Credit crop insurance manager Kathi Levan reminds area farmers that the sales closing date for corn, soybeans, and other spring crops is Monday, March 16.
As this date approaches, Levan urges farmers to contact their crop insurance representative to discuss their coverage. “There are many new options this year and producers are encouraged to contact an agent as soon as possible to discuss coverage and options,” she says. “Customers who are renewing their plans should make sure to discuss their coverage and options with their agent prior to this sales closing date and make sure any and all necessary changes have been made.”
Crop insurance is a risk management tool for farmers, used to provide financial protection against unforeseen circumstances that lead to low production. “You can never be too prepared when it comes to protecting your crops,” says Levan. “We offer a wide range of coverage options to fit the needs of our diverse customer base, making sure they are ready for the unexpected.”
