The Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC) revised the Dry Pea Crop Provisions for the 2021 and succeeding crop years with the following changes:
- Allow insurance on Fava/Faba beans;
- Add program dates for Arizona and California;
- Add a moisture adjustment to gross production;
- Update the policy for consistency with other crops with coverage on both fall and spring-planted acreage in the same county; and
- Clarify policy provisions.
A Final Rule with these changes was published June 26, 2020, in the Federal Register. FCIC invites you to submit comments on this rule through the close of business August 25, 2020, at regulations.gov.
The Dry Pea Crop Provisions (21-0067) 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.
The first sales closing date for the 2021 crop year sales for the Dry Pea Insurance Program is September 30, 2020, in select states and counties. 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.
