The deadline to purchase coverage under FSA's Non-insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program has changed for Canola-FAL effective for the 2010 and subsequent crop years.
The sales closing date for the Canola-FAL crop was previously Aug. 31 of the year prior to the growing season. For Canola-FAL, the new closing date for Kentucky will be Sept. 30.
For coverage for the 2010 crop year, producers must purchase a NAP policy by Sept. 30. The NAP program allows producers to have protection on crops in which catastrophic level of crop insurance is not available.
NAP coverage can provide financial assistance in cases where there is a crop loss or prevented planting due to a natural disaster.
