NAP application deadline looms

12:04 PM, Sep. 26, 2013  |  Comments

Wisconsin Farm Service Agency reminds producers interested in participating in the Non-Insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) of the upcoming application deadline dates that must be met for NAP qualification.

NAP is designed to cover losses caused by damaging weather conditions. If losses are in excess of 50 percent, payment would be received. Losses are generally determined by the percentage of loss compared to the producer's actual yield history. Eligible production losses are paid at 55 percent of the established value for the crop.

? The deadline date for 2014 forage crops, including most perennial forages, annual grasses, and pasture land forages not covered by federal crop insurance, is Sept. 30, 2013.

? Sept. 30, 2013, is also the application closing date for winter and spring plantings of 2014 wheat, rye, cultivated wild rice and mint.

? Perennial crop deadlines on fruit and other crops such as apples, cherries, pears, blueberries, strawberries, grapes, honey, maple sap, asparagus, cranberries and other perennial fruits is Nov. 20, 2013.

Producers with NAP coverage must remember to timely file acreage reports and or inventories, and keep track of harvested production using acceptable methods. A "Notice of Loss" must also be filed within 15 days of when a loss is apparent due to drought, hail, flood, etc., to qualify for NAP.

Producers interested in NAP are encouraged to contact their local FSA office to obtain coverage or for additional information on 2014 NAP policies prior to the above deadline dates.
