USDA Extends North Dakota Crop Insurance Options

Bismarck, N.D. (AP) The U.S. Agriculture Department has announced new supplemental coverage for North Dakota crops through the federal crop insurance program. U.S. Sen. John Hoeven said Wednesday the department's supplemental coverage option will include corn and barley for all North Dakota counties in the 2015 crop year. It covers soybeans for 33 of the state's counties. The republican senator had previously announced coverage would be available for spring and durum wheat in all counties. The supplemental coverage option was included in the 2014 farm bill to let farmers purchase an extra insurance policy beyond their individual farm-based policy. Hoeven says he's looking forward to other counties being included in the future.
