The Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC) has expanded the number of counties where certain crops are insurable for the 2017 crop year. The following attachment, 2017 Expansion of Existing Perennial Crops Programs, lists the expansion by crop, state, and county for permanently-established (non-pilot) programs.
The Risk Management Agency is continuing the policy of expanding crop insurance programs, particularly where interest by producers has been shown of providing producers the opportunity and responsibility for managing their own risk for their farming operations.
Approved Insurance Providers should advise agents and in turn producers of the expanded county crop programs for the 2017 crop year to allow producers the opportunity to purchase crop insurance.
