The USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) reminds Mississippi corn, cotton, grain sorghum, peanuts, rice, and soybean producers that the final date to apply for crop insurance coverage for the 2023 crop year is February 28. Growers who are interested in the Whole-Farm Revenue Protection policy and the new Micro Farm Program and are calendar year or early fiscal filers, have until February 28 to apply for crop insurance. Current policyholders who wish to make changes to their existing coverage also have until the February 28 sales closing date to do so.

Federal crop insurance is critical to the farm safety net. It helps producers and owners manage revenue risks and strengthens the rural economy. Coverage is available for corn, cotton, grain sorghum, peanuts, rice, soybeans, Whole-Farm Revenue Protection, and Micro Farm in select Mississippi counties. Additional information can be found on the Actuarial Information Browser page on the RMA website.

Growers are encouraged to visit their crop insurance agent soon to learn specific details for the 2023 crop year.

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