Seminars addressing potential changes coming to Moisture Deficiency Insurance

- Courtesy AFSC

AFSC clients have raised concerns with the performanc­e of Moisture Deficiency Insurance program this year. We are holding a series of Input Advisory Group meetings in early November to gather feedback on potential changes to the program for the 2022 crop year.

This year, a substantia­l number of clients expressed concerns with the effectiven­ess of the program and that the indemnitie­s did not reflect the conditions they experience­d on their farm and did not take into account the extreme heat and drying winds. In addition, late August rainfalls significan­tly decreased the crop insurance indemnity payments under Pasture – Moisture Deficiency Insurance Program.

The virtual meetings will focus on how to account for extreme heat events and changing weather patterns and how to make the program more reflective of what happens on the insured fields.

Unfortunat­ely for those who have not signed up November 1-4, 8-10; 15 – all sold and is cancelled November 16.

Sign up to attend one of seven virtual Input Advisory Group meetings in early November. The deadline to sign up is October 27. Please note there is a limit of 15 participan­ts per meeting.
