Crop insurance final plant date and prevented planting

The WAWG office has received multiple inquires regarding the final spring plant date for crop insurance purposes. With up to 200 percent precipitation over last year throughout Eastern Washington, current field conditions are causing growers to be concerned about their ability to meet RMA’s final plant date. WAWG is in communication with the Spokane Regional RMA office on this issue. Growers are encouraged to talk with their crop insurance agent and monitor Greensheet Alerts and Wheat Life as more information becomes available.
