Crop insurance provides a safety net to farmers, so when unforeseen weather conditions happen, or the market turns, they can protect their business and the livelihood of themselves and their families.
Westminster, MD (PRWEB) August 29, 2017
The crop insurance sales representatives with Farm Credit want to remind farmers that important fall sales closing dates are approaching for purchasing crop insurance. Wheat and barley sales close on October 2, pasture rangeland and forage (PRF) closes on November 15, and nursery, orchards, and vineyards close on November 20.
“Farming is a very unpredictable business,” says Kathi Levan, MidAtlantic Farm Credit’s crop insurance manager. “Crop insurance provides a safety net to farmers, so when unforeseen weather conditions happen, or the market turns, they can protect their business and the livelihood of themselves and their families. It has saved family farms, and it’s something we highly recommend all farmers look into purchasing.”
As the deadlines approach, Farm Credit urges producers to contact their crop insurance provider as soon as possible to learn about the options available to them. “Our experienced team of crop insurance representatives can help create an insurance package that best fits your needs,” says Levan. “We’re here to help anyone deciding whether or not crop insurance is for them, and would be happy to review your current policy to see if any adjustments should be made.”
