Earlier this year, the USDA released a new factsheet relevant to both conventional and organic farmers who may be interested in obtaining crop insurance. Read on and download the new factsheet below to find out whether this important risk management tool may be helpful to your farm.
From the USDA: “Organic farming has become one of the fastest growing segments of U.S. agriculture. USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) recognizes organic farming practices as good farming practices and continues to move forward in improving crop insurance coverage for organic producers and producers transitioning to organic production to make viable and effective risk management options available. In general, regulations governing the insurability of organic and transitional practices are the same as for conventional practices.”
