Crop insurance deadlines near for Georgia tomato and pecan growers
Georgia tomato and pecan producers have until Jan. 31 to apply for crop insurance coverage or make changes to existing coverage for the 2020 crop year.
Federal crop insurance is critical to the farm safety net. It helps producers and owners manage revenue risks and strengthens the rural economy. Coverage is available for fresh market tomatoes in Colquitt, Decatur, Grady, Mitchell, Seminole and Tift counties. Coverage is available for pecans in select Georgia counties. Please contact your insurance agent to see if your county is covered.
