Triticale Insurance to be Available in Some Western Kansas Counties in 2018

RISK MANAGEMENT AGENCY (RMA) – The Federal Crop Insurance Corporation Board of Directors approved the Triticale insurance program, a privately developed product that was submitted and approved under section 508(h) of the Federal Crop Insurance Act. Triticale insurance provides coverage for damage resulting from naturally occurring events. Beginning with the 2018 crop year, the Triticale insurance program will be available in select counties in California, Idaho, Kansas, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, and Washington. The Triticale insurance program is similar to other individual yield-based insurance programs and uses a producer’s Actual Production History to establish the insurance guarantee.

Selected Kansas Counties include: Finney, Grant, Gray, Greeley, Hamilton, Haskell, Kearney, Lane, Meade, Morton Scott, Seward, Stanton, Stevens and Wichita.
