I have to admit I haven't attended a good crop insurance review for 2013 yet this year. In the mix of doing Private Pesticide Applicator work- shops, and a few other tasks, I'm certainly looking for an opportunity to attend a good crop insurance dis- cussion session. The first thing I encourage farmers to do is to look back at their own experience with pro- ducing crops and with crop insur- ance and think about the primary risk they are trying to protect against. I talk with some people who farm land in the part of the county where their biggest con- cern is prevented planting cover- age. For some farmers the dairy cows are part of risk management in making use of crops that don't turn out very well. They are think- ing largely about meeting feed needs. Another farmer is think- ing more about how crop insur- ance fits with their grain mar- keting strategies. A skilled crop insurance representative is look- ing at your farm situation with you and thinking with you about your needs, and the kind of crop insur- ance product that might fit your situation the best. Those who study weather pat- terns report that we are still in a pattern of significant weather variability and intensity. It's likely to be too dry this year somewhere, and it's likely to be too wet some- where. We just don't know where. Farmers continue to look at crop insurance options that are based primarily on Yield Protec- tion (YP) based on APH yield his- Showcase Your Business, Products & Services tIIPNIL 9:00AN I:00PN Litchfield Civic Arena Contact the Litc00e]d 00amber of Commerce for Exhibitor Mormafiono Registration Deadline is February 22 (320) 693-8184 219 North Sibley Avenue, Litchfield CHAMBER OF COMMERCE LITCHFIELD M I N N  S O T A tory (Actual Production yield His- tory) and Revenue Protection pol- icies (RP) that are based on yields and market variables. More peo- ple are considering RP products to account for risk in the markets as well as risk in the field. Over the last couple of years, the crop insurance program has devel- oped something called a Trend- Adjusted Actual Production His- tory (TA-APH) for corn and soy- beans. Wheat will be added to this in some areas in 2013. In some sit- uations, TA-APH allows farmers to raise their APH yield based on yield trends. Farmers continue to make choices about how their crop insurance is structured as "units." This might apply to land in differ- ent sections, in different counties, or based on whether a parcel of land is contiguous with other par- cels of land. The "unit" structure might affect Whether fields are all averaged together to determine a loss, or evaluated separately. This will also affect premium rates. Farmers should make sure they understand how different choices will play out for them in terms of how premiums are cal- culated, how a loss is evaluated, how a payment related to a loss is determined. Take time to ask questions and to understand how your choices relate to your needs and goals, and how things work around your farm. Farmers might consider whether crop insurance coverage affects eligibility in the event of a USDA crop disaster declaration. Creditors might have require- ments for specific crop insurance features.
