[September 12, 2012]  SPRINGFIELD -- Illinois Farm Service Agency State Executive Director Scherrie V. Giamanco announced on Tuesday two closing dates for Noninsured Disaster Assistance Program applications.

The following crops have a 2013 NAP application closing date of Sept. 30, 2012: forage crops (mechanically harvested or grazed), barley and rye.

Also, the following crops have a 2013 NAP application closing date of Nov. 20, 2012: apples, asparagus, blueberries, caneberries, cherries, grapes, nectarines, peaches, pears, plums, rhubarb and strawberries.

NAP provides financial assistance to producers of noninsurable crops when low yields, loss of inventory or prevented planting occur due to normal disasters.

In order to meet eligibility requirements for NAP, crops must be noninsurable, commercially produced agricultural commodity crops for which the catastrophic risk protection level of crop insurance is not available. If the Risk Management Agency offers coverage for a crop in the county, then NAP coverage is not available for that crop.

In the event of a natural disaster, NAP covers the amount of loss greater than 50 percent of the expected production based on the approved yield and reported acreage.

Eligible producers can apply for coverage using Form CCC-471, Application for Coverage. Producers must file the application and service fee by the applicable deadline. The service fee is $250 per crop or $750 per producer per administrative county, not to exceed a total of $1,875 for a producer with farming interests in multiple counties.
