USDA Releases Prevent Plant Update

Attention crop insurance clients: the USDA released an update today for producers who chose to take prevent plant and plant a cover crop.Previous rules indicated that growers could not “otherwise harvest” the crop at all nor could they hay or graze priorto November 1st.

Due to the potential for lack of livestock feed this fall, RMA has replaced that language with “Cutting for silage, haylage or baleage will be treated the same as haying or grazing.” In addition, all references to the November 1st date, as it relates to haying or grazing, in any procedure will be replaced with September 1st.
