Pilot program for forage (alfalfa) seed insurance becomes permanent for 2015


USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) announced that the forage (alfalfa) seed insurance policy offered through the federal crop insurance program will be converted to a permanent policy for the 2015 crop year. It was a pilot program introduced in 2002. Washington and Oregon growers insured 6.963 acres under the pilot program in 2013.

Producers are encouraged to visit with their crop insurance agent to learn more about the forage seed insurance policy. If there is no coverage availability in a county, producers may ask a crop insurance agent whether they would be eligible for coverage under a written agreement.
