2014 Kansas winter canola update

The United States Department of Agriculture’s Risk Management Agency recently expanded federal crop insurance coverage options for winter canola in Kansas. Irrigated and non-irrigated winter canola is now insurable for producers in Barber, Harper, Kingman, and Sumner counties. Irrigated winter insurability only is available for Gray County. Coverage in other counties may also be available by written agreement if certain criteria are met, including providing records for at least the three most recent years of production history for canola or a similar crop.

Revenue coverage will now be available for Kansas beginning in the 2014 crop year.

Acres planted to canola in Kansas have more than doubled since 2008. RMA’s Topeka Regional Office expects that the amount of insured acreage will continue to increase in Kansas due to expanded coverage options, the current commodity prices, and the increase in national demand for canola. Kansas State University currently has a cooperative partnership with the Topeka RO to help producers understand and use good farming practices for winter canola.

The sales closing date for winter canola insurance was Aug. 31. The acreage reporting date is Dec. 15.

Other important dates are:

Sales Closing/Cancellation—Aug. 31;

Earliest Planting Date, Gray County—Aug. 25;

Earliest Planting Date, Kingman County—Sept. 1;

Earliest Planting Date, Barber, Harper, and Sumner counties—Sept. 10;

Final Planting Date, Gray County—Sept. 25;

Final Planting Date, Kingman County—Sept. 30;

Final Planting Date, Barber, Harper, and Sumner Counties—Oct. 10;

Acreage Report Date—Dec. 15;

Premium Billing—July 1, 2014; and

End of Insurance—Oct. 31, 2014.

Producers are encouraged to spend time working with their crop insurance agent to learn additional details of canola crop insurance programs for the 2014 crop year. Federal crop insurance program policies are sold and delivered solely through private companies and agents. Canola producers interested in insuring their canola crop need to talk to a crop insurance agent.

A list of crop insurance agents is available at all USDA Service Centers throughout the United States or on the RMA web site at More information on the 2014 canola crop insurance program can be found at and
