NSA is working with RMA to have trend-adjusted actual production history yields (Trend-Adjusted APH) for sunflower in all counties in all states that have sunflower crop insurance coverage. This would give sunflower producers another option to update their actual production history (APH) when making crop insurance decisions. Trend-Adjusted APH is available in 2018 in most counties in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota. It is available in some counties in Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska and Texas.
NSA also is requesting the RMA Billings office to change the final planting date in North Dakota counties that currently have a June 5 final planting date to June 10 and counties with a June 10 final planting date to June 15 to go into effect for the 2019 crop year.
