Crop Insurance Workshops

*Urgent Notice*
All Delaware farmers should attend a free workshop entitled
Crop Insurance for 2009 Small Grains: How the New Farm Bill Makes Your Decision Critical to Disaster Program Eligibility

The new Farm Bill requires crop insurance on all acres of any insurable crop and/or enrollment in the FSA’s Noninsured Assistance Program (NAP) on all acres of uninsurable crops in order to be eligible for a new “whole farm” disaster program call Supplemental Revenue Assistance Program (SURE). Delaware Producers must apply for crop insurance for their fall seeded wheat and barley Before the Sales Closing Deadline – September 30, 2008 to be eligible for federal disaster aid (SURE) in 2009.

Sponsored by the Delaware Department of Agriculture through a Risk Management Agency grant, this workshop includes a crop insurance update, discussion of wheat market outlook for 2009, and an early overview of emerging Farm Bill programs from FSA personnel.

This workshop is being offered at two different locations.  Attend the location and date most convenient for you. Please call the DDA Crop Insurance Info Line, toll free, at 877-673-2767 to pre-register and with any of your crop insurance questions.
