Triticale is a privately developed product that was submitted to the FCIC Board under Section 508(h) of the Federal Crop Insurance Act. Triticale is a cross between wheat and rye, and, when planted for harvest as grain, can be covered through this new program. Starting in the 2018 crop year, the Triticale program will be available in select counties in California, Idaho, Kansas, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, and Washington. The program provides coverage for damage resulting from naturally occurring events. It is similar to other individual yield-based insurance plans and uses a producer’s Actual Production History to establish the insurance guarantee. A producer may choose a coverage level from 50 to 85 percent. A producer may also choose to insure the RMA established price election or, if they have a contract, the price stated in the contract.
