NAP Deadline Dec. 2

USDA Reminds Producers of December 2 Sales Closing Date for Noninsurable Crops

  (Denver, Colorado)– November 22, 2013 — USDA Colorado Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director, Leland Swenson, reminds producers that they have until December 2, 2013, to purchase coverage through the Noninsurable Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) for Alfalfa, Clover, Grass, Honey, Mixed Forage, Mustard and Vetch. The sales closing date is actually December 1, 2013, but producers have until Monday, December 2, 2013, to purchase coverage this year because December 1 falls on a weekend.

NAP provides financial assistance to producers of noninsurable crops when low yields, loss of inventory or prevented planting occur due to normal disasters.
  "Purchasing a crop insurance policy is an easy way for producers to mitigate risk," said SED Swenson. "The past few years have shown that natural disasters can severely impact an otherwise successful operation," he said.
In order to meet eligibility requirements for NAP, crops must be noninsurable, commercially-produced agricultural commodity crops for which the catastrophic risk protection level of crop insurance is not available. If the Risk Management Agency (RMA) offers coverage for a crop in the county, then NAP coverage is not available for that crop.
