RMA announces Prairie Pothole prevented planting rules

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Risk Management Agency announced a clarification to prevented planting crop insurance provisions for what is known as the Prairie Pothole region, following pressure from the local congressional delegations and producers. The new guidelines include eliminating the “normal weather” provision to allow a producer who plants and harvests a crop one out of four years, regardless of the weather situation, to be eligible for prevented plant coverage. Previous rules defining normal weather conditions were up for subjective interpretation, leaving many growers uncertain about how they could use those years to qualify for prevented plant insurance. The new rules also remove a provision regarding the presence of so-called “marsh vegetation.” These new rules will go into effect for the 2014 crop year. More about the changes from RMA is at http://www.rma.usda.gov/news/2013/08/prairiepothole.pdf.
