FSA Reminds Producers of Important March 15 Deadline for 2013 NAP Coverage

FSA Reminds Producers of Important March 15 Deadline for 2013 NAP Coverage
Francie Tolle, executive director of USDA's Farm Service Agency (FSA) in Oklahoma would like to remind producers that they have until Friday, March 15, 2013 to sign-up for the 2013 Non-insured Assistance Program (NAP) coverage for spring and summer planted crops. This deadline applies to warm season grasses intended for grazing as well as spring and summer planted crops such as: forage sorghum, peas, soybeans, sunflowers, pumpkins, melons and all other spring and summer planted specialty crops grown for food or fiber where they are not insurable.


NAP covers losses caused by damaging weather conditions. Producers receive a payment when the loss is in excess of 50 percent. Losses are generally determined by the percentage of loss compared to the producer's Actual Production History (APH). Eligible production losses are paid at 55 percent of the established value for the crop.


The service fee is $250 per crop per county or $750 per producer per county. The fee cannot exceed a total of $1875 per producer with farming interest in multiple counties. Limited resource producers may request a waiver of service fees.


"Producers who currently have NAP coverage or who are interested in coverage are encouraged to keep accurate production records," said Tolle.
NAP coverage is only available for crops not covered under the Federal Crop Insurance program. Producers are reminded historically FCIC insurance or NAP coverage is required on all crops in order to remain potentially eligible for the agency's Disaster Assistance Programs. Producers are encouraged to contact their local FSA office to obtain NAP coverage or for additional information on NAP prior to the March 15 deadline.


More information on FSA programs is available on the FSA website at http://www.fsa.usda.gov/ok.
