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.
