Sales Closing Date for Late Fiscal Filers for Whole-Farm Revenue and Fruit Producers Nears

Producers in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington Need to Make Decisions Soon

SPOKANE, Wash., Oct. 25, 2019 — For Idaho, Oregon, and Washington producers, late fiscal filers for Whole-Farm Revenue Protection can obtain their (WFRP) policy by November 20, 2019 for the 2020 crop year. Calendar and early fiscal filers have until March 15, 2020.

RMA also reminds Idaho, Oregon, and Washington fruit producers that the final date to apply for crop insurance coverage for the 2020 crop year is November 20. This date applies to crop insurance policies for apple, blueberry, cranberry, grape, pear, stonefruit crops (apricots, nectarines, freestone peaches, and plums/prunes), sweet and tart cherry (actual revenue history), and table grapes. Current policyholders who wish to make changes to their existing coverage also have until the November 20 sales closing date to do so.

Individual yield crop insurance policies provide protection against production losses due to natural perils. The Actual Revenue History and WFRP policies provide revenue protection.
