RMA issued Manager’s Bulletin: MGR-19-001 that expanded the 2019 and 2020 crop year county perennial and spring crops for a number of crops, states, and counties and recommended that approved insurance providers should advise producers of the expanded programs.
ANALYSIS – Periodically the Risk Management Agency (RMA) reviews its crop/county programs to determine whether there are any crops or counties where there has not been sales for a number of years or there are crops or counties where a program is not currently offered but there is an interest in a program. With respect to certain crops there must have been an interest in expansion to new counties. Presumably these crops, states and counties have been added to the actuarial documents. To check, producers should look at the actuarial information browser published at https://webapp.rma.usda.gov/apps/actuarialinformationbrowser/.
