New Crop Insurance Plan for Triticale Now Available in Three States

A news release earlier this week from USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) stated that, “[RMA] wants to inform producers in Idaho, Oregon and Washington about a new insurance plan option for the crop triticale. Triticale is a cross between wheat and rye and can be covered through this new plan.

“Insurance for triticale is now available for the 2018 crop year in Idaho: Ada, Bannock, Bear Lake, Benewah, Bingham, Bonneville, Butte, Canyon, Caribou, Cassia, Clearwater, Elmore, Franklin, Freemont, Gooding, Idaho, Jefferson, Jerome, Kootenai, Latah, Lewis, Lincoln, Madison, Minidoka, Nez Perce, Oneida, Owyhee, Payette, Power, Teton and Twin Falls counties; Oregon: Gilliam, Jefferson, Klamath, Linn, Malheur, Marion, Morrow, Polk, Sherman, Umatilla, Union, Wallowa, Wasco, Washington and Yamhill counties; and Washington: Adams, Asotin, Benton, Columbia, Douglas, Franklin, Garfield, Grant, Klickitat, Lincoln, Okanogan, Skagit, Spokane, Walla Walla, Whitman and Yakima counties.”

The update explained that, “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.”
