Crop insurance programs signup deadline is Sept. 30

The Carroll County Farm Service Agency in Westminster reminds producers that Sept. 30 is the deadline for signing up for two programs.

They are:

Crop insurance for wheat barley and oats. Current small grains policyholders must make any changes to their coverage. Price elections, per bushel, for the 2006 crops are wheat, $2.80; barley, $1.85; and oats, $1.33.

Crop insurance on forage production. Changes to the current policy must be made to existing contracts. Forage production insurance covers pure alfalfa, alfalfa and perennial grasses, and mixed alfalfa and perennial grasses. The 2006 price election is $145 per ton.
