Due to late fall establishment of cover crops and the slow start to spring, Sarah Carlson with Practical Farmers of Iowa, has researched and shared three steps to extend the crop insurance deadline for cover crop termination. These steps will help producers address concerns of terminating the cover crops now while they are so small.
Step 1) Check your RMA termination deadline.
Step 2) Let your crop insurance agent know you’ll be requesting a deviation.
Step 3) Request a termination deviation from your county NRCS office.
For more information on completing each step, check out Sarah’s post here.
Wishing you a safe and happy planting – and cover crop termination season!
