Nathan Peterson from the Farm Service Agency Office would like to remind area farmers that the deadline to apply for the Wildfire and Hurricane Indemnity Program Plus or WHIP+ program is October 30th. The program covers crop losses in both 2018 and 2019 that were a direct result of a natural disaster. Natural disasters include but are not limited to, tornado, flood and excessive moisture. Peterson adds that most of the area counties have been declared natural disaster counties due to the flood excessive moisture during the 2019 crop year.

If you have not applied for the WHIP+ program, Peterson says you should call your FSA Office immediately so you can get on their processing list.
