March 15 is the deadline to certify cover crop acres

Farmers: The federal crop insurance premium discount for planting cover crops has been extended for the 2022 crop year. The deadline to receive the cover crop discount is March 15.

This benefit is part of the Pandemic Cover Crop Program (PCCP) recently approved by USDA’s Risk Management Agency. To qualify, producers need to certify their cover crops by completing an FSA-578 form (with the FSA) by March 15th.


FYI: Rye and turnips are the two most commonly planted cover crops in our area.

Everyone has their forte in life. Insurance is not mine. I wanted to find someone I could trust...It was easy to trust Joe and Roxie and I was comfortable asking them questions.
