Sept. 1 is NAP application closing date for certain crops

Sept. 1 is the application closing date for certain crops under the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program.Crops eligible for NAP benefits are limited to those not insurable in the county and are produced for food or fiber, reports Adrian J. Polansky, executive director of USDA’s Farm Service Agency in Kansas.This is the final date to pay the applicable service fee for coverage for aquaculture, canola, Christmas trees, speltz, turf grass sod, and all small grain crops with the intent of harvesting by grazing or for forage.

The administrative service fee is $250 per crop per administrative county not to exceed $750 per producer per administrative county and a $1,875 maximum fee for multi-county producers.

This coverage entitles eligible producers to a payment of 55 percent of an average market price for the commodity if a natural disaster caused a 50 percent production loss or greater of an eligible crop.
