Custer County producers urged to consider NAP, other risk protection coverage before deadlineseadlines


U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) County Executive Director Amy Mauler in Custer County reminds producers to review available USDA crop risk protection options, including Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) coverage through FSA and federal crop insurance, before the spring-seeded crop deadline of March 15, 2018.

“NAP policies allow producers to protect their investment by purchasing coverage for noninsurable crops,” Mauler said. “Natural disasters are an unavoidable part of farming and ranching and FSA programs like NAP help producers recover when they experience a loss.”

Federal crop insurance coverage is sold and delivered solely through private insurance agents. Agent lists are available at all USDA service centers or at USDA’s online Agent Locator at
