Sales Closing Dates

The Sales Closing Date is the date by which your application for insurance must be filed with your crop insurance agent and is the last date by which changes to coverage may be made for the upcoming insurance year. 

Insert big round calendar graphic here. 


RMA Cost Estimator

Did you know that the Federal Government subsidizes a portion of the crop insurance premium?  These subsidy amounts typically range from 38% to 80%.  That means that you, as the producer, only pay a portion of the total premium.  The RMA Cost Estimator is a useful tool that allows a farmer to create a customized crop insurance premium estimate.  Each estimate provides liability, total premium, subsidy, and producer premium amounts along with the loss trigger point.  You may also contact AgriLogic Consulting at Alaska@AgriLogic.com to request a FREE custom quote.

RMA Agent Locator

Contact an agent to find out more about crop insurance for your farm and to fill out an application for coverage.  Agents licensed to sell crop insurance are subject to change.  Please visit the RMA Agent Locator for the latest information.

HELPFUL HINT!!  In order to locate all crop insurance agents licensed to sell in Alaska, it is important to set the search distance within the Agent Locator to “No limit” since agents licensed to sell in Alaska can be located in other states.  It is also important to search for agents licensed in Alaska rather than the default setting of “All States”.
