Crop Insurance Deadline Looms

Producers have less than a week left to purchase fall crop insurance.

USDA Risk Management Agency Administrator Eldon Gould says producers and crop insurance agents are busy thinking about the fast approaching deadline for fall seeded crops. The sales closing date for 2008 fall crop insurance is next Tuesday, Sept. 30.

There is a list of 11 crops that are affected by that closing date and Gould says there are no changes from last year to the crops covered under fall planted crop insurance.

"I would suggest that people do it as soon as they can," Gould says. "Get together with their agent so they can review their policy for their crops for the fall seeded season."
