RMA removes normal weather provision from prevented plant policy

The agency eliminated the “normal weather” provision, meaning farmers can collect prevented plant insurance, as long as they’ve planted in one of four previous years, regardless of weather situation in the year they planted. The provision has been a sticking point for some farmers trying to collect prevented plant insurance for their 2013 crops, as RMA had classified 2012 as an “abnormally dry” year, thereby disqualifying it for inclusion in the one-in-four rule.
