The Risk Management Agency (RMA) revised the Grass Seed Crop Provisions to clarify how producers can use prices from their production contracts for crop insurance purposes. Specifically, if producers have multiple contracts with different prices, the clarifications illustrate how to calculate a weighted average price. RMA also increased the maximum contract price factor from 1.20 to 1.60 and moved the factor to the actuarial documents so that it can be updated more easily in the future.
The Grass Seed Crop Provisions (23-0102) will be available by close of business today on the RMA website at www.rma.usda.gov.
Approved insurance providers must notify policyholders of these changes at least 30 days prior to the cancellation date, as required by the policy.
Interested producers should contact a crop insurance agent for further information. A list of agents can be found on the RMA website at www.rma.usda.gov/en/Information-Tools/Agent-Locator-Page.
