2006 spring-seeded crops (03/09/2006)
Local producers are reminded that March 15 is the application closing date to sign up for the Non-Insured Assistance Program coverage on most spring-seeded crops.

"Producers interested in obtaining NAP on their 2006 spring-seeded non-insurable crop acreage should visit their local USDA Service Center as soon as possible to complete an application for their 2006 acres," said Jim Hannula, director of the Trempealeau County Farm Service Agency.

This deadline date also applies to persons who have a policy that expires on March 15th and want to renew coverage for 2006.

NAP coverage is available for crops only where insurance coverage is not available under Federal Crop Insurance policies provided by private insurance agents.

NAP is designed to cover losses due to damaging weather conditions. The program covers losses of more than 50 percent of normal yields or the farm's yield calculated using actual production histories. Payments for production lost in excess of 50 percent are paid at 55 percent of the values established for the crop.

The cost per policy is $100 per crop per producer with a $300 cap per county. NAP coverage begins 30 days after the application is filed and the $100 administrative fee has been paid. The $100 administrative fee is non refundable.

"Producers who have NAP coverage now or who are interested in coverage need to keep accurate records of their production, report acreage of the crops to FSA annually, and promptly notify FSA when ever losses occur," said Hannula. "A report of the actual yield is key in maintaining a yield that reflects their capability."

Producers are encouraged to contact their local FSA office for additional information on NAP coverage and for a list of eligible spring-seeded crops before the March 15, 2006 deadline.
