On Farms and Ranches, Every Day Is Earth Day
 
By: Barry Bushue, State Executive Director, Oregon Farm Service Agency and Kevin Conroy, Acting State Conservationist, Natural Resources Conservation Service.
 
At USDA, we celebrate Earth Day 2019 by offering a big thank-you to farmers and ranchers here in Oregon for all they do. Every day we see their efforts to conserve natural resources while producing food, fiber and fuel for people in their communities and around the world. They are doing what needs to be done to make sure we all enjoy the benefits of clean and plentiful water and healthy soils, ecosystems and wildlife habitat.

Celebrating Women in Agriculture

USDA has recently developed a new tool that helps identify the impacts that women have in Agriculture, by State, as well as Nationally. 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.

Non-insured 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 www.fsa.usda.gov/nap. Or call your local FSA county office.
