PROPOSED "COMBO" POLICY COMMENT PERIOD RE-OPENED
John Shea, 202-690-0437
WASHINGTON, Sep 26, 2006 - In order to solicit additional public feedback on the
proposed "combo" policy, USDA's Federal Crop Insurance Corporation has re-opened the
comment period for an additional 30 days.
The proposed combination or "combo policy" would provide both revenue and yield
protection for small grains, cotton, coarse grains, malting barley, rice, canola, and
rapeseed, and replace the Crop Revenue Coverage, Income Protection, Indexed Income
Protection, Actual Production History and Revenue Assurance plans of insurance. Amendments
would offer producers a choice of revenue protection (against loss of revenue caused by
low prices, low yields or a combination of both) or yield protection (for production
losses only) within the same Basic Provisions and applicable Crop Provisions.)
The new comment period ends Oct 26, 2006.
