RMA – USDA are undergoing major site changes – migration. Some links can be broken, we replace the old ones because the USDA publishes new links to web pages and manuals. More than 320 acres| Must request a written agreement from the RMA before the closing of the sales of the crop that the producer intends to make. areas not registered for the production of an annual crop on February 7, 2014 or before February 7, 2014 for the production of an annual crop for production or before February 7, 2014, and on which the vegetation cover consists mainly of native grasses, grass-like plants, forbs or shrubs suitable for grazing and excavation. 1. The policyholder considered that 75% or more of the new break area per field (or within an existing field, if only part of the field is a new break surface) consists of soil types defined as Capacity I, II, III or IV classes, as defined by the Natural Resources Conservation Service `websoilsurvey.nrcs.usda.gov/app/HomePage.htm` Web Survey (websoilsurvey.nrcs.usda.gov/app/HomePage.htm); Note: Added surfaces and now crop/practice/type requests no longer need to be forwarded to RMA for approval. Less than 320 acres | An insurance company may ask the AIP to cover the reporting period by excluding a new break-up liability requirement. 4. When the NRCS requires a plan to conserve the new break area, the policyholder must provide documents that exist or will be. If NRCS does not request a conservation plan for the new break surface, the manufacturer must certify that a surface is not required. (3) The policyholder must provide documentation on how the new break area was previously broken and plant a crop. This documentation must show that the new break zone was built on or before February 7, 2014. Examples of documentation include: an FSA-578 document of February 7 or 7, 2014 indicating the previous crop on which the new fracture zone was planted; an FSA-578 document of February 7, 2014 or before February 7, 2014, indicating that the new area is classified as arable land; etc.; and again, it`s important to notify your agent if you`ve added country or new lanes this year.
