Improvements to Whole-Farm Revenue Protection Taking Effect for 2020 Crop Year

The National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC) has posted a summary of revisions to Whole-Farm Revenue Protection crop insurance that are set to take effect in the 2020 crop year, beginning in August 2019. Among the changes are raised coverage caps for livestock and nursery production, exclusion of disaster payments from revenue, and changes in the way that disaster years will be counted in a farm’s historic revenue. Also, hemp is being added as a crop eligible for coverage, with restrictions.
