Coverage for Morrow County, Oregon Producers Now Available

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Risk Management Agency (RMA) has announced the expanded availability of the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation’s (FCIC) blueberry crop insurance coverage in Morrow County, Oregon.

The 2018 sales closing date for blueberries is Monday, November 20, 2017.

Current policyholders who wish to make changes to their existing coverage also have until the sales closing date to do so. Producers, including those in Morrow County, Oregon are encouraged to visit their crop insurance agent soon to learn specific details for 2018 crop year.

Crop insurance is sold and delivered solely through private crop insurance agents. A list of crop insurance agents is available at all USDA Service Centers and online at the RMA Agent Locator. Growers can use the RMA Cost Estimator to get a premium amount estimate of their insurance needs online.
