MidAtlantic Farm Credit is reminding area producers that the sales closing date for corn, soybeans, other spring crops, and whole farm revenue protection is March 16. Producers are encouraged to contact their crop insurance agent to discuss changes to their policy, including adjustments to coverage levels, adding or removing a county or crop, additional options available, or cancellations. All policy adjustments must be completed and signed by March 16.
“Crop insurance is an important risk management tool that provides financial security for producers,” says Kathi Levan, MidAtlantic Farm Credit’s crop insurance manager. “In the event a weather-related or natural disaster occurs that can lead to low production, crop insurance will help protect an operation’s bottom line.”
Through partnerships with multiple insurance providers, Farm Credit has access to systems that allow customers to compare several coverage levels to pick the one that best suits their farm operation. “We’re happy to look over current crop insurance policies and talk through the many options available to help producers plan ahead,” adds Levan.
