Eligible owners and operators can begin to sign-up for the Crop Disaster Program (CDP) for crop year 2007. South Dakota has processed over $78 million in CDP payments.
CDP provides benefits to farmers who suffered quantity and quality losses to 2005, 2006, or 2007 crops from natural disasters if the crop was planted or prevented from being planted. Producers who incurred qualifying crop losses in 2005, 2006 and/or 2007 must choose only one year to receive benefits.
Producers may apply for benefits for losses to multiple commodities as long as the losses occurred in the same crop year. Only producers who obtained crop insurance coverage or coverage under the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) for the year of loss will be eligible for CDP benefits. Producers must have suffered quantity losses in excess of 35 percent to be eligible for CDP.
Please call (605) 624-7060, Ext. 2 the Clay County FSA office for more details or to schedule an appointment.
