Tri-county-ag-list Crop insurance rule change for cover crops and forage in 2013

USDA logoUSDA has announced a crop insurance rule change that will allow farmers to harvest a cover crop for forage in the spring of 2013 and still insure a following grain crop. This practice was not previously allowed if a grower wanted to insure a grain crop. This is a temporary rule change to help livestock producers impacted by the drought.
