RMA on What Farmers Should Do When Disaster Strikes
- posted: Nov. 04, 2016
USDA Risk Management Agency (RMA) has published an informative new summary sheet explaining what farmers with crop insurance should remember to do when disaster strikes. See http://www.rma.usda.gov/pubs/rme/naturaldisasters.pdf.
The USDA’s Risk Management Agency oversees the federal crop insurance program that supports the nation’s farmers and ranchers in difficult times. The safety net provided by federal crop insurance and other USDA programs helps keep agricultural producers in business.
Whether a producer experiences loss due to a major disaster like a hurricane, or more localized weather like hail, there are steps they should take to ensure they can file a crop insurance claim on time to ensure they receive their indemnity quickly.
