USDA Workshops on a New Insurance Option

The USDA’s Risk Management Agency has expanded the Nursery Value Select crop insurance program to all counties in all states and will host two virtual information workshops on Thursday, April 18.

Start times are 1:00 p.m. CDT and 6:00 p.m. PDT for interested nursery producers who want to learn more about the program. These sessions will be valuable for producers in the newly expanded areas and especially for the Nursery Field Grown and Container crop insurance program, which ends with the 2026 crop year. The Nursery Value Select Insurance Program is a pilot program that allows nursery producers to select the dollar amount of coverage that best fits their needs.

NVS, which is an asset-based form of insurance, covers damage due to, but not limited to, things like adverse weather conditions and fire. NVS is based on the existing nursery crop insurance program but has a simpler application and renewal process.
