Crop insurance deadline Sept. 30

Staff Writer

The USDA’s Risk Management Agency reminds Ohio wheat growers the final date to apply for crop insurance coverage or for current policyholders to make changes to their existing policy for the 2023 crop year is Sept. 30.
Federal crop insurance helps producers and owners manage revenue risks.
Producers may select from several coverage options, including yield coverage, revenue protection, and area risk policies.
For producers without insurance, contact a crop insurance agent to get information on coverage options, and premium cost. Producers with coverage should review their policy with an agent.
One option added last year was the Quality Loss Option. This is an option growers may elect to improve their Actual Production History (APH) for years in which they suffered a quality loss.
The Quality Loss Option must be elected by the sales closing date of Sept. 30. When elected, the quality loss will replace post-quality adjusted production with the pre-quality adjusted production for any year the insured filed a notice of loss.
For more information on this and other crop insurance options, growers should contact their crop insurance agent.
The RMA is authorizing additional flexibilities due to coronavirus while continuing to support producers, working through Approved Insurance Providers (AIPs) to deliver services, including processing policies, claims and agreements.
The RMA staff is working with AIPs and other customers by phone, mail and electronically to continue supporting crop insurance coverage for producers.
On, there is more information on USDA’s response and relief for producers.
Crop insurance is sold and delivered solely through private crop insurance agents. A list of crop insurance agents is available at all USDA Service Centers and online at the RMA Agent Locator. Learn more about crop insurance and the modern farm safety net at
