With the unpredictability of market conditions and the weather, it’s important to be prepared for whatever may come.
Westminster, MD (PRWEB) February 16, 2016
MidAtlantic Farm Credit is reminding area farmers that the sales closing date for corn, soybeans, and other spring crops is Tuesday, March 15. Any changes to the coverage on your policy, including coverage level changes, adding or deleting a county or crop, adding options, or cancellations, must be done and signed for by this date.
“Whether you are renewing your policy or are interested in learning how crop insurance can be beneficial to your operation, we encourage all area producers to call our agents and discuss the coverage options available to them,” says Kathi Levan, MidAtlantic Farm Credit’s crop insurance manager.
As a risk management tool, crop insurance provides financial security for farmers in the event a natural disaster or other circumstances occur that can lead to low production. “With the unpredictability of market conditions and the weather, it’s important to be prepared for whatever may come,” says Levan. “Our agents can tailor policies to fit your operation’s unique needs.”
