The 2014 Farm Bill was recently signed into law and has raised many questions and concerns from agents, insureds, and service agencies regarding Crop Insurance changes. There are new policies and endorsements in the offering for Crop Year 2015, not the current 2014 Crop Year. There are rate adjustments and subsidies in the offering also. Risk Management Agency (RMA) has not made the details available to Approved Insurance Providers as to how, when, and in what manner each of these new initiatives will be effected. RMA is advising us that there is a lot of hypothetical and misinformation being circulated. We want to inform you that until RMA releases their final positions on these products, nothing will change. As absolute information is released by RMA, more information will be provided here.
