February 1, 2014 is the last day to buy or change a policy for onions in Modoc and Siskiyou counties.
Producers who purchased crop insurance are covered for all natural causes of loss listed in their policies. Policies are yield and revenue based and vary across commodities and regions. Producers can tailor their coverage to fit the needs of their operation with a choice of coverage levels that range from 50 to 75, or 85 percent on some policies.
More information on specific crop programs can be found in the crop insurance factsheets online.
Producers can get a premium amount estimate of their insurance needs with the online cost estimator.
