The crop insurance sales agents with MidAtlantic Farm Credit remind farmers that important fall sales closing dates are approaching for purchasing crop insurance. Wheat and barley sales close on September 30, pasture rangeland and forage (PRF) closes on November 15, and orchards and vineyards close on November 20.
“Agriculture is a very cyclical industry,” says Kathi Levan, MidAtlantic Farm Credit crop insurance manager. “Crop insurance provides a safety net to farmers, protecting their business and livelihood when unforeseen weather conditions happen or the market turns. It has saved family farms, and it’s something we highly recommend all farmers purchase.”
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 agents can help create a tailored insurance package to fit individual operations’ needs,” says Levan. “We’re happy to review current policies to see if any adjustments should be made.”
