SURE Program sign-up
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency has begun accepting applications for the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Program (SURE).

Program signup will continue through June 7, 2013. The program provides payments to producers when crop revenues are less than the crop guarantee. Program payment is equal to 60 percent of the difference between the crop guarantee and revenue.

To be eligible, producers must have crop insurance on all insurable crops. For crops that are not covered by crop insurance such as pumpkins and cucumbers, producers must have purchased Non Insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) coverage at FSA.

Producers’ crop insurance information is provided electronically to the Farm Service Agency and is used to calculate any payment. Sign-ups for the program will be conducted by appointment.

For more information about the SURE program or other Farm Service Agency programs, contact the Sandusky County farm service agency at 419-334-6330, the Wood County FSA at 419-352-5171 or Lucas/Ottawa County FSA at 419-898-2651. More information is also available at
