Risk management agency changes reporting requirements for specialty crops

USDA’s risk management body has changed some rules regarding reporting of specialty crop insurance.

Administrator Marcia Bunger tells Brownfield that the changes will simplify the process. “We are considering a new marketing certification that will allow producers to self-identify whether they have indifferent third party records when needed. This will allow producers to use their own support production records. You will be able to do it. “

According to Banger, this change eliminates the need for approved insurers to perform pre-harvest assessments, which could disrupt harvesting, marketing and other normal businesses.

And Banger says producers have the flexibility in how to keep the records they need, whether electronic or handwritten. “It works with any of the records management systems they currently use. Perhaps the only thing that doesn’t work is to capture all that information in your head.”

Banger says he hopes that this change will often help small producers who work alone and sell through direct marketing and farmers markets.
