Insurance for crops following a cover crop
SPRINGFIELD — The drought has left feed for livestock in short supply. Many producers are considering planting cover crops this fall that may also be grazed or cut for hay. Brian D. Frieden, director of the Springfield Regional Office for USDA’s Risk Management Agency, offers this insurance update for those considering planting cover crops this fall.
If you are a producer in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan or Ohio and you want to insure a crop planted in the spring of 2013, such as corn, sweet corn, popcorn, hybrid seed corn, processing pumpkins, soybeans, processing beans and grain sorghum, following a cover crop, you must:
• Stop haying or grazing the cover crop by May 10, 2013.
