INFORMATIONAL MEMORANDUM: R&D-99-035

TO:          All Reinsured Companies
             All Risk Management Agency Field Offices

FROM:        Tim B. Witt	/s/ Tim B. Witt
             Deputy Administrator

SUBJECT:    Correction to the 1999 Peanut Crop Provisions 

Section 9(a) of the Peanut Crop Provisions (99-075) states acreage that is not replanted in accordance with this Subsection is not insurable. Section 14(e)(1)(v) states an appraisal will be made against acreage that is not replanted in accordance with the policy. This provision implies that such acreage that is not replanted is insurable. Therefore, Section 14(e)(1)(v) is in direct conflict with Section 9(a). A technical correction to remove Section 14(e)(1)(v) from the Peanut Crop Insurance Regulation was published in the Federal Register on June 23, 1999.

The Peanut Crop Provisions have been revised and are available on the RMA WebSite at:
