Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments (SURE) program enrollment for 2010 crop year losses begins Nov. 14.
To qualify for a SURE payment, the producer’s operation must be located in a county that was declared a disaster, either as a primary or contiguous county, for 2010 and have at least a 10 percent production loss that affects one crop of economic significance. Producers with agricultural operations located outside a disaster county are eligible for SURE benefits if they had a production loss greater or equal to 50 percent of the normal production on the farm.
LaRue County received a disaster designation in 2010.
To meet program eligibility requirements, producers must have obtained a policy or plan of insurance for all insurable crops through the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation and obtained Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program coverage on non-insurable crops, if available, from FSA.
Eligible farmers and ranchers who meet the definition of a socially disadvantaged, limited resource or beginning farmer or rancher do not have to meet this requirement. Forage crops intended for grazing are not eligible for SURE benefits.
For more information on SURE program eligibility requirements contact your the FSA office at 765-2702 or visit http://www.fsa.usda.gov/sure.
