The crop insurance program continues to evolve. Recent changes include a new Quality Loss Option, a new unit structure assignment option for Enterprise Units and new procedures for Multi-County Enterprise Units. Glenda Blindert is a crop insurance agent in Salem, South Dakota and has been involved in the development of a new product for alfalfa. “The forage seeding policy covers alfalfa from the first year you seed it to that first summer and first winter. If it winterkills or drowns out, you get paid for those acres. Now, we’re also able to add in fall seeding and by fall seeding I mean by August 31.”
