Crop insurance agents at area lender MidAtlantic Farm Credit want to remind producers that important fall sales closing dates are approaching for purchasing crop insurance. Wheat and barley sales close on September 30, pasture rangeland and forage (PRF) close on November 15, and orchard and vineyard close on November 20.
Drought, damaging weather, and other unforeseen disasters throughout the year threaten crops and can put the farmers’ major source of income at risk, making farming an uncertain business. “No one can be sure of the weather from season to season,” says Kathi Levan, MidAtlantic Farm Credit’s crop insurance manager. “Crop insurance provides a sense of security for farmers. To know that a plan is in place that will protect their production in the event of a natural disaster helps them sleep at night.”
