Crop insurance deadlines near for multiple Georgia grain commodities

Georgia farmers who produce barley, canola, oats and wheat have until Sept. 30 to apply for crop insurance coverage or make changes to their existing coverage.

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 barley in Crisp, Jefferson, Pike and Walton counties. Coverage is available for canola in Bartow, Calhoun, Chattooga, Cherokee, Floyd, Franklin, Gordon, Hart, Murray, Polk Walker and Whitfield Counties. Please contact your insurance agent to see if your county is covered.

Growers are encouraged to visit their crop insurance agent soon to learn specific details for the 2019 crop year. A list of crop insurance agents is available at all USDA Service Centers by visiting the RMA agent locator at Learn more about crop insurance and the modern farm safety net at
