The organic practice is offered for all insurable crops in
Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio.
Changes to the organic price used to establish insurance
coverage will provide a crop insurance guarantee more reflective
of organic crop values. Last year, RMA revised the organic price
for corn, soybeans and processing tomatoes. For 2014, this list
was expanded to include oats and mint. Also, most organic
producers can now choose to use either their contract price or
the established crop insurance price for coverage.
Organic transitional yields, or t-yields, used by producers
who do not have enough organic production history to establish
insurance coverage, have been revised and separated from
non-organic t-yields. Additionally, the 5 percent premium
surcharge has been removed.
