The Iowa Organic Association and Megan Vaith with Northbourne Organic Crop Insurance, LLC, will present a webinar on Wednesday, November 16 at 12 p.m. about new and existing crop insurance options for organic and specialty crop farmers, including information about the USDA’s new Transitional and Organic Growing Assistance (TOGA) Program.
Are you a producer transitioning to organic or maybe you already grow a certified organic grain or feed crop? Are those crops covered with Federal crop insurance? If the answer is yes, you can now get premium assistance from the USDA for the 2023 reinsurance year through the TOGA Program. It’s offered by the USDA’s Risk Management Agency, and it can reduce your overall crop insurance premium bills, and help you continue to use an organic agricultural system.
