Perennial Crops - Sales Closing Date for Crop Insurance
November 20th, 2015 is the last day to purchase a new, change or cancel an existing crop insurance or Non-Insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) policy. Growers are encouraged to read the fact sheet for apples and peaches as they consider their 2016 risk management needs. All other perennial crops are covered byNAP which is administered by the Farm Service Agency (FSA). Growers can also contact the UMass Extension Risk Management Education team for assistance understanding these programs.
