YEP, RUST'S COVERED UNDER CROP INSURANCE

In order to collect insurance from Asian soybean rust, you must be knowledgeable of any pending outbreaks and the control methods recommended by local ag experts, according to USDA's Risk Management Agency (RMA). Failure to purchase and apply adequate control measures due to economic reasons is not an insurable cause of loss.

“Insured producers are expected to use good farming practices and follow the recommendations of ag experts to control this fungus,” says RMA Administrator Ross J. Davidson, Jr.

For more information on rust insurance, see the crop policies area on the RMA Web site at www.rma.usda.gov.
