Farmers who want to purchase noninsurable Crop Disaster coverage from the Farm Service Agency should do so before the end of the month. The closing date for purchasing coverage through the NAP is September 1st.

The following crops have a NAP application closing date of Sept. 1, 2011:All Small Grains (Wheat, Oats, Barley, Rye & Triticale), Beets, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Canola, Cauliflower, Garlic, Sod Grass, Greens, Herbs, Kohlrabi, Leeks, Lettuce, Onions, Radishes, Strawberries, Turnips and Value Loss Crops (Christmas Trees, Crustaceans, Fin Fish, & flowers).

In the event of a natural disaster, NAP covers the amount of loss greater than 50 percent of the expected production based on the approved yield and reported acreage.

In order to meet eligibility requirements for NAP, crops must be noninsurable, commercially-produced agricultural commodity crops that the catastrophic risk protection level of crop insurance is unavailable. If the Risk Management Agency (RMA) offers coverage for a crop in the county, then NAP coverage is not available for that crop.

For more information on sales closing dates and NAP eligibility requirements, contact the Lubbock County FSA office at (806) 785-5644 Ext.2.
