Infographics showing what percentage of women farm in each state and nationally are included in this new tool, as are links to blogs in which powerful stories of women in agriculture are featured. In addition, links are provided to the Women in Agriculture Mentoring Network, where women can connect with other women leaders in agriculture all across the country.

Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP)

If you produce a specialty crop that is ineligible for crop insurance, we’ve got an improved program that can help protect against losses from weather and natural disasters.

The Non-Insured Crop Disaster Assistance program, or NAP, is now available, offering much more than in the past. Previously you were covered at 55 percent of the market price for losses exceeding 50 percent, but now you can cover 65 percent of your crop at 100 percent of the price.

For new, low-income or previously underserved farmers, there is free basic coverage, and higher coverage at discounted premiums.

Learn more on the web at Or call your local FSA county office.

Phil Ward Appointed Oregon’s FSA Executive Director

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack appointed Phil Ward as Sate Executive Director (SED) for the USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) in Oregon, June 23, 2014. Ward is a fifth generation Oregonian whose ancestors traveled the Oregon Trail in the late 1840s.


Phil Ward is no stranger to Oregon Agriculture. He earned Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Agricultural Education from Oregon State University and began his professional career as a high school agriculture teacher. He was named Oregon’s Outstanding Young Agricultural Teacher in 1983. Although Ward left teaching, he continued his service to the agriculture industry when he joined the Oregon Department of Agriculture, in 1984, as a Special Assistant to the Director. He was eventually promoted to Assistant Director of the Department, and in that role supervised the Natural Resource Policy Area of the agency and served as liaison to the Oregon Legislature.


In 1997, Ward left government service to become Executive Vice President of the Oregon Farm Bureau. In 1999, at the request of then Governor John Kitzhaber he returned to the Oregon Department of Agriculture as its Director. During his tenure, he led the implementation of Oregon’s groundbreaking Agricultural Water Quality Act and worked to increase markets for Oregon agricultural products in the Pacific Rim. In June 2004, he was appointed to serve as Director of the Oregon Water Resources Department by Governor Theodore Kulongoski. Governor Kitzhaber reaffirmed the appointment upon his return to office in 2011. In that role, he administered over 80,000 agricultural, industrial and municipal water rights.


As the State Executive Director for Oregon FSA, Phil Ward oversees all aspects of federal farm program implementation as delivered by Oregon FSA’s nearly 200 employees and producer-elected county committee members. FSA’s programs include those outlined in the Agricultural Act of 2014 (Farm Bill) signed into law by President Obama on Feb. 7, 2014.


As SED, Ward will rely on his agricultural education and professional experiences to efficiently, effectively and fairly implement FSA programs that protect and conserve agricultural practices and resources and that ensure a safe, affordable, abundant and nutritious food supply for consumers.


Phil Ward and his wife Pam have three grown children. They currently live with two chocolate labs named Huck and Finn on a piece of the home farm near the Willamette River, south of the town of Independence.
